Cobalt Silhouettes

A teal twilight inks cobalt silhouettes, as shy stars unveil their flickering lights. And shadows slink forth melding with the night, while a sanguine sun feigns a scarlet death. Crimson clouds cluster at horizon’s edge, absorbing shades of cerise and purple. And daylight shrinks to a brindled aura, reflected by rusty crystals of ice. Dusk weeps dewdrops grieving to no avail, as dark dims the last vestiges of light. And brisk breezes whisk heat away in gusts, eerily chilling both body and soul. Long skeletal fingers anchor the sky, to a lone tree rooted in ebony. And a marshmallow moon appears snagged, in the netting of its Velcro branches. Creatures of the dark stir from their slumber, in the wake of a disappearing sun. And as silence sets life bends to its will, all but a cricket’s haunting piercing shrill.

    Hello Emile, i like the blue shading of the silhouette. I like the way the creatures of the dark gripped my mind with the annoying cricket noise.. in all I love the poem. I like the dusk to no anvil... The poem has been a delight... I can't wait to see if you post another poem soon...xox~ Linda
