Norfolk Sundowner

The August sky is full of fire,

Illuminated,

Celebrated

With golden luminosity.

Our burning curiosity

Is aroused

By clouds

Backlit by sun and tinged with silver,

Resplendent,

Iridescent,

Blushing from the afterglow

Of summer’s heat.

Day admits defeat

And fades from sight,

Twilight tumbles into night.
