Blue Sunset

The sun is fading now and dusk is settling in.
Wisps of strata float aimlessly toward the darkening horizon.
Majestic firs nestle in ebony satin cloaks for nocturnal hiding.
Patches of brilliant blue embrace the last rays of day.

The evening sky now trades its rays of day
For a cloak of dark.
Now, after sunset,
Brightness fades into thousands of subdued,
Nameless, incandescent, twinkling lights
Against a blanket of black, which engulfs
The earth as far as the mind can fathom?
Not long removed from another blue sunrise."
