Another poem has popped out of my brain, inspired by this gorgeous picture of today’s sunset, taken by a good friend of mine.

By Julia Koslowsky

Heaven doused in fiery flames
Desert within a sky
Golden light arcs overhead
The flames together fly.

The golden fire flickers,
But still is shining bright
The golden fades to orange hue
As day turns into night.

The orange light is fading
Replaced by fiery red
Red tones also seem to die
Turning to pink instead.

The Sun gives up her battle
Thrust weary through the clouds
Sky is still on fire
Burning without a sound.

Heaven doused in colors pale
The light begins to fall
Fires burn no more this day
The moon comes with Night’s call.

  1. This is a beautiful poem! I love the part about a desert being in the sky! What a powerful image! You’ve definitely recreated the image that inspired the poem.

    One suggestion: perhaps don’t use “fiery flames” together on the first line. It’s a tad redundant,
