Pin It

Colors Passing 

The sun gathered gold
dispersing blue until tomorrow
yields to pink along the blushed horizon.

We watched the sunset
from Plattekill Avenue.

Exchanging stories and
talking with our hands
revealed mutual colors.

As though this happens everyday,

The sun dropped below
darkening trees
transforming henna into orange.

Turning toward twilight,

We headed East
words trail indigo
reaching for violet.
