Wan shades of carmine and carnelian Dying in a sunset’s languid demise The flame of pink, the smoke of lavender Grudgingly giving rise…to Final feeble glowing light of velvety purple Then to Ebon soot of night

    An absolutely beautiful, carefully observed evocation of an ordinary event. I really enjoy writing that incorporates a rich palette of literal color. Fine writing; fine reading. Thanks. Jack
