Coral fingers tickle blue, gone purple.
Moments flee; the fingers pale, then retire.
Vast power fading, intense light heightens
The hues of dusk, grasping for lost moments
Of the day. No beauty is held in time.
Source of Inspiration for Texas Sundown
I try most evenings to slow down to enjoy a gift from our Creator. Sundown, the daily, one-of-a-kind display of power and color never cease to awe and amaze me. When asked once how I came up with the color palette for my Florida home of corals and purples, I admitted that it was not an original concept rather an inspiration from the “ultimate decorator”.
Texas Sundown was published in The Best Poems and Poets of 2004.
