Surrey Sunset

Green like a piece

of powdery mint gum

oozes into a streak of cornflower blue.

Gauzy wisps of white clouds

weave finger trails in the variegated sky.

A dusky lavender bleeds

into a mauve that flirts with brown,

and a paradise pink chases

the jubilation of tropical orange.

The car loops along a diamond sparkle river

and, like a black-robed judge,

the bulbous moon arrives out of

a jagged, towering mountainside.

Burnt yellow from the fading sun,

the mammoth orb reigns over silver whispers.
