Before Darkness #3

An amber orb, waltzes daintily in the sky,

drowning in the orange streaks above the horizon.

Light slithers away,

relinquishing its claim over the terrain with a cry.


Malevolent shadows,

hide in every nook and cranny

waiting silently for darkness

to make its grand entrance, to propose.


The tawny expanse

evolves into a dark blanket

of shimmery blues and blacks-

glimmering specks of romance.


Gossamer clouds hide under gauze veils

and galaxies glitter like uncut diamonds fit for a wedding ring.

Mulberry paints the sky,

the colours swirling to form spectacular images and tales.
