‘The setting sun’

The setting sun 
fulmunated in the empty 
high above the benthic deep 

Where the seas 
shimmered in the lambent light 
Of a crimson sunset 

As the star of day 
beset by weariness 
Induced by the  trials 
of a toilsome arduous daytide 

Descended the scape 
languid and subdued 

For to dip its blazing fires 
into the cool waters 
That lapped at the feet 
of a firmament 
Darkened by the fury 
of a smouldering dusk
