Sunset

SUNSET

Darkness cloaks the earth
Silhouetted ‘gainst fire in the sky
Reaching, stretching way up high
Streaks of orange, red and yellow
Stunning pyrotechnic show
Colours pale and fade from sight
A monochrome scene
Drawn by moonlight

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  6. Thank you so much for those lovely words.

    I do love to watch the evening sky and see the shadows changing places As it gets darker the colours and clouds become more definite, wonderful time to reflect!

  9. This humble night owl must protest. The moon and stars are their own display, and only the night can highlight the fury of a thunderstorm. The fickle setting sun is oft can disappoint. Of course, I’m stuck in the Midwest.
