Beautiful sunset vibrant at eve
radiant colors coo and bring peace
Mixtures of yellows and warm melodies,
reds come at gentle night’s breeze.
Festival of day’s end celebrated in color
as orange sun, pink clouds blend with each other
Gulf Stream breeze atop ocean’s glass flat
in dusk’s trapezoid rays bask.
Lively things feed in boat’s passing, break-glass
blue-gray sky’s lines against darkness lose track
Quiet fish tails and fins
surround shark’s sleek back
As eyes to canal captain’s aim keeps track.
Gothic-green needle swimmers
arch against almost black
Fading light on scales shimmer
as captain’s gaze keeps track.
. . . then in whites of eyes glimmer,
as day’s thoughts come back.
