“The burnt sky” #poem #poetry #verse #writing

The burnt sky 
Of red ochre 
Pursued the vast orb of fire 
High above the realm 
Scattering in its wake 
A stream of glories in scarlet and vermilion 
That fanned out from the palette of flames
As it glowed in the skies
And graced the waters below
With shimmering rubescence
Upon a sea of molten cornelian
While the ferruginous cliffs
Gleamed in the evening light
Like burning embers
As steeply upward 
To’ard the fiery firmament they did rise   
From the sandy beach below
Bathed in tones of rust 
Afore the sombre hues of night
In full majestic splendour 
Dispelled the crepuscular extravaganza
The hour of slumber in indigo for to establish 
~ d.a.simpson ~
