“A hint of pale gold” #poem #poetry #verse #writing

A hint of pale gold 
Pierced the dark blue 
Of the dying night sky 
As it slowly ebbed with fatigue 
And did silently fade 
While lights of salmon pink 
Began to flicker at the horizon 
And danced upon the somnolent sea 
Where the gleaming waters 
Encountered the hem of heaven 
And soon flames of warm amber 
Emerged from the realm of shadows 
And flooded the firmament 
Unto the highest realms
Seeping into the ceiling of the dome
Where they melded 
Into hues of parchment and corn
Until the sheet of cerulean blue
Rose up from beyond the edge of the world 
A triumph of day over night
Light over darkness for to declare 
As it spread its canopy of azure 
Throughout the heavens entire

  1. This is flamboyant and beautiful. Just wonderful imagery. I love the use of color description, especially becuase of its vivid role in accentuating the overall mood.

    Beautiful.
    Might I just suggest, you could try writing such descriptive poems in present tense. I found that they are much smoother on the ears that way.
    Wonderful job though.
    Have a fantastic day
