After Sunset – Miracle Challenge

After sunset

when evening shadows

begin inching toward dark

in dusky, amethyst hues

the flames of a burning sun diminishing,

cosmic splendor is born anew

as twilight claims the pivotal hour

before Nightfall dons her sultry evening gown.

Once burnished hands stretch upward

one rung nearer to starry surprise

in velvet skies

as the Moon blows kisses

into a fathomless galaxy

and asteroids fling themselves

with flair.

After sunset

and once upon a time

when one with calm and beauteous aspect

and wondrous eyes

and all that was best in dark and bright

met for a moment

in cloudless climes.

She walks in beauty, like the night 
   Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright 
   Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light 
   Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
--George Gordon Byron

  3. ‘Tis lovely, and your phrases make such beautiful images in my mind. How well I remember those long Texas days, when it was still 90 degrees at bedtime — funny, but we’re having some of the same heat right now here in Central Illinois!
