Blue Sunset

The sun is fading now and dusk is settling in. Wisps of strati float aimlessly toward the darkening horizon. Majestic firs nestle in ebony satin cloaks for nocturnal hiding. Patches of brilliant blue embrace the last rays of day.

The evening sky now trades its rays of day For a cloak of dark. Now, after sunset, Brightness fades into thousands of subdued, Nameless, incandescent, twinkling lights Against a blanket of black, which engulfs The earth as far as the mind can fathom- Not long removed from another blue sunrise.
