Sunset Sunrise

The sun a brushstroke In the distance A streak of crimson 'neath the dark A palette pale Of Autumn pastel… The horizon only A morbid mark Purple clouds Weigh down the sun Brilliant lit below Yet dark as ink atop Cloudbanks press The glow to none… And cause the light To dim…then stop Violet hues Mottle the sky And daylight bruised Bids the land goodbye Takes it’s rest In it’s nighttime nest Licks it’s wounds Til darkness swoons Then once again, e'er true Our sunny friend Returns anew… To once more paint the sky
