‘Strands of lilac and salmon pink’

Strands of lilac and salmon pink 
waft in ribbons across the sky 
For to bid a final adieu 
to the scant remains of a dusk 
From a forgotten yesterday 

That linger melancholic awhile 
reluctant the scene to relinquish 

As a dying sun 
melts into the liquid darkness 
Where abides an unseen abyss 
below a distant horizon 
Which edges the inky sea 

While in the east 
a moon of chalk white
Materialises in glorious majesty
amid a retinue of stars 
lost in a violet sky
That characterises the hour of dreams
