Cobalt Silhouettes

Twilight inks earth in cobalt silhouettes, before shy stars unveil flickering lights. And shadows slink forth melding into night, as a defeated sun feigns scarlet death. Indigo clouds cluster into a shroud, absorbing shades of cerise and purple. And day shrinks to a aura of crimson, restrained within rusty crystals of ice. Dusk weeps dewdrops grieving to no avail, as dark dims the last vestiges of light. And breezes whisk the heat away in gusts, eerily chilling both body and soul. Long skeleton fingers anchor the sky, to a lone tree rooted in ebony. While a marshmallow moon becomes snagged, in the netting of its velcro branches. Creatures of the dark wake from their slumber, unaware of the disappearing sun. And as silence sets, life bends to its will, all but a cricket’s haunting piercing shrill.

    Emile, please share more of your most creative talent with us.... Don't let your efforts lie unappreciated in the confines of some spiral bound notebook.... Let them shine. Great work here..... Jake

    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
