colorful poem of an Arizona Sunset


Twilight approached soon 

In a swing she sat calmly staring 

Wondering if serenity was apparent 

To the casual strolling passersby 

Multi-hued banded rays of color 

Splashed along the horizon 

Skipping & dancing at days end 

Soon the oncoming night will arrive 

Orange & Red vanishing 

Melting into pale shades of blue 

‘Twas a painters' palette 

Brilliant Arizona sunset bursting 

Laughingly invading azure skies 

Calmly nudging childhood memories 

Forgotten long ago 

Sunset dimming against twilight 

Darkening into blacks of night 

Twinkling stars canvas this easel 

Winking back & forth 

Blanket spread upon the grass 

She & sis would gaze above 

Count the stars they would try 

Laughingly losing place 

Delighted with a shooting star 

In silence they both lay 

Splashes of color for all to see 

Walk me back in time 

The child in me never far from home 

With Arizona's sunset evenings
