November Miracle

Just before setting, the sun reflected orange

into the clouds in the west;

The orange danced and flirted with November navy,

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 changing,

whether bold or faint;

Miraculous glimpses of heavenly wonder -

colour that words can't paint.
