Fire On The Horizon

Fire On The Horizon short poem

Photo by Esparta

The shimmering summer sun
Sets on the distant horizon
Setting ablaze
In a shimmering heat haze
The careless cumulous clouds
Aglow with crimson incandescence

Distant twinkling stars
Awake in the turquoise twilight sky
Mysterious worlds
Afar and on high

The end of another glorious day
With promise of more to come
A day as fresh and glorious
Warmed by the glow of the sun
