Fire in the Sky

A step into the backyard at twilight into a glorious sunset…


flames etch the horizon

scorching into memory

its fiery sadness

brandishing the heart

searing the soul



slow with descent

melting in splendor

darkness engulfs

close of day

as the last ember glows


A beautiful sunset stills the mind, calms the heart…become lost in its splendor. ~catnipoflife
