‘The sky blushed’

The sky blushed a delicate peach 
where it encountered the dark indigo line 
That described the horizon 
at the edge of the realm 

And a golden glow 
characterised the loftier dominions 
amid the mountainous skies above 
As they assumed the radiance 
from the disc of a waning day 

While the erstwhile blue of the sea 
took on a metallic sheen 
of shimmering turquoise 
When the crepuscular lambency
bloomed in the heavenly scape 
and encroached upon the world below
