Just before setting, the sun reflected
into the clouds in the west;
The orange danced and flirted with
and the sky was filled with zest.
For a brief moment the sky was
a wonder -
the canvas of today;
Never before, and never again
will the sun set exactly this way.
The artist captures colour, forever
whether bold or faint;
Miraculous glimpses of heavenly
colour that words can't paint.
