Sunset

Poetry

Watching a flock of birds

Birds 1

Dance across the fiery canopy of the sky

On flame-tipped wings;

On fiery wings copy

And flying beyond the silver sliver of the moon

Is pure poetry.

Fly me to the moon

Hot red chili pepper skies

Chili peppers are measured in Scoville units,

With the spiciest pepper in the world scoring over two million Scovilles.

I think these red hot clouds would also score highly, don’t you?

Hot red chilli

And what better way to enjoy a vibrant sunset

Than with a good furry friend!

Breathtaking

Sometimes a sunset

Is so breathtaking

That all you can do

Is stand there humbled

Exhiliration

And drink in all the wonder.

A winter’s tale

Back in February, we took a trip to visit a new friend

Living on the shore of a large inland lake.

High and dry

Some boats were marooned in the harbour

And people strolled out onto the frozen lake

To enjoy the view.

Sky

I felt all buoyed up

By the dazzling snow and sunlight.

Buoys

Just as we were leaving,

The sun made a glorious spectacle of itself

Casting a golden glow over this winter’s tale.

Lilac memories

Back in October,

The sky turned lilac

Purple ribbon

And the water filled

With slender ribbons and hearts made of clouds.

Ribboned sky

And underneath all that splendour,

The ducks swam  on purple velvet.

Flambéed skies

Take a sky in Venice:

Add fire,

Flambé the clouds

Flambeed

And enjoy the strawberry glaze

Of a beautiful sunset.

Iconic Venice

Whether it’s a lovely morning

And you’re a humble seagull —

Seagull

Or whether the sun is setting

In purple shades of satin

And you’re a tourist —

We can all agree on one thing:

Venice is beautiful!

Into Impressionism

Late September sunsets

Are when cloud rainbows reflect in water

Rainbow

And autumn dances in

Wearing lilac veils.

Dog days

Sweet memories of

The dogs days of summer:

Purple sky

Enjoying sultry evenings

Of purple magnificence

With my best furry friend.

The blue hour

Late summer is a time for the blues —

Time for the happy blues;

Boat

Time to gaze in wonder

At the ripples

Ripples copy

And enjoy a golden sunset

(And a dog).
