Sunset Poem

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.
