Daily Hues

by Kate   Jan 21, 2022

The sunset drips in hues of blood orange,
Melting into whispers of the softest blues.
Shapeshifting birds play in the distance.
They sway together, creating a gray haze
Against the backdrop of the sleepy sun.
Like a thundercloud arising from a clear sky,
Like emotions rising from a steely facade:
Abrupt, a chaotically handsome orchestration.
I watch, mesmerized by their choreography,
Pondering the feeling of air under open wings,
To fly at those devastatingly beautiful heights.
The sun sulks behind the rising city skyline
And a handful of stars glitter through the blur
As I push farther and faster down this street.
I sit in the dimming pink aura of a parking lot,
Filling this space with a soft peach ring smoke.
The horizon finding its fire: a deep magenta
Mixed with the sweetest lilac and gold layers.
The moon sits nestled in a halo of pure white
As its canvas dips into the deepest of navy.
Flickers of red arise; airplanes pass overhead.
I am cloaked in the fierce orange glow of lights
As the world fades somewhere into the black
Before I convince myself it is time to go home.
