Dragon

dragon

 

Hulking black beast

Dominates vulnerable skies

Underbelly aflame

With streaks of hellfire

Crimson to coral

Orange to molten gold

Draconic shapeshifter

Vast and powerful

Stalking the morning horizon

With mythical grandiosity

Bewildering sleepy eyes

On the earth below.

January Sunset

The soft sunset sky

Boasts a spectacular spectrum,

Flushed with toasty shades of burnt orange

And juicy mandarin,

To the delicate tastes of lemon and lime,

Blending into feathery lavender

And multi-hued azure,

Spreading to star-speckled sapphire

And deepest velvety indigo,

All flecked with the blazing coral

Of airplanes and their trails;

Beneath it all,

A disc of burnished gold

Hovers on the horizon,

Before succumbing to slumber.
