Sunset

The sky gathers her colors

To prepare for her death.

Not wanting to be forgotten,

She is going to give it her best.

As the colors begin to play

Against a heavenly canvas,

They create such brilliant hues-

Without a doubt their grandest.

The sky, she signals to the sun

To give a final glow.

And the angels themselves come out to watch

The sky in her death throes.

A thousand shades of madness-

She's pulling out all the stops now.

They dance and shine at her command

To make way for her final bow.

The colors soften to orange

As she begins to die.

And a breath-taking masterpiece

Takes over the evening sky.

Now the sun is falling downward,

And the sky is following fast.

But although saddened by her demise,

She's proud she gave it her best.
