As darkness falls above the eastern skies,

To Dreamland on Sunset's Lullaby

Gracefully the young crescent moon
ascends the sky like a cosmic tune;
replacing the drowsy pale yellow sun
sinking on a golden glowing horizon.

Royal blue sky scattered sapphire clouds
On horizon embroidered in navy blue attire
Summoned by the onset of marigold sun 
Emitting amber gold on tuscan yellow fire

Premium Member Fearful and perplexed
Fading sun elaborates

As vibrancy floats
Lavender on periwinkle
Embossing clouds

Atop the red bridge
Suspended in perpetuity
From vermilion towers
In resplendent posture
