Welcoming the Night

sunset-122864_640My New Years resolution was that I would do some exercise every day. I have not done a good job of keeping that resolution, but I did go for a walk the evening before last and witnessed the most beautiful sunset. When I got back home, I was inspired to write:

A glass of buttermilk has spilled across the evening sky,
Reflecting the last vestiges of a light-drenched day.
The sun just slid off the canvas,
Leaving it marbled with hot pink, orange and purple.
Welcoming the night.
