“A great fire in the sky” following a stunning sunset.

A great fire in the sky
A deep orange did blaze
The remains of day to burn
Long into the e’entide crepuscular
Where there glowed embers golden
And the hills smoked and simmered
As the heat of the day
High above the land did rise
Forever to be lost
In the mists ne’erending
That do swirl across the face of the earth
And now ’tis night
When darkness cloaks the realm
And myriad creatures
With hushed footsteps
Forth do creep
As across the land
They softly move
While the great waves of the sea
Heave and roll
Cool and clean
Under a silent night sky
Much aglow with light from aeons past
By stars and heavenly bodies strewn
Through the endless cosmos

  1. Wondrously vivid imagery and I adored these lines, they certainly stirred my imagination…
    “And now ’tis night
    When darkness cloaks the realm
    And myriad creatures
    With hushed footsteps
    Forth do creep”
