This is a poem I wrote about an imaginary sunset while experimenting
with poetry. I hope you enjoy it!
Paint splashed across the sky
Vibrant color astounding my eye
Taking in the setting sun
Over the hill where the river runs
Flowing to the ocean.
Red at first, fades to yellow,
Pinks, bold, and blues, mellow,
The sky a giant canvas coated
With colors that are devoted
To making this beautiful view tonight.
We sit on the hill, you and I
Watching the night take over the sky
The sun is gone, the moon glows
And the hill where the river flows
Is overtaken by night’s shadows.
Stars shine bright with icy light
Through the warm summer night,
Keeping vigil across the skies
Until again the sun shall rise.
