Cycle

Cycle

As the sun sinks from view
and the green flash expires
A crimson canvas bleeds its last light
 
The remains of the day
plays its trickery on the eyes
before being swallowed by night
 
A big silvery moon
rises high in the velvet sky
casting its blanket bright
 
As stillness descends
the earth transitions
in fascinating delight

    gorgeous Christine, if one were unable to see another sunset, they should read your words, the warmth of the fading sun and earth’s cyclic dance is pictured so gloriously.
