Sunset Portrait

A multi-hued portrait slowly emerges from a quixotic brush dipped

into the flamboyant palette of a sunset-splashed vista, where

seagulls pine in mid-air disport, sounding clarion calls

as they fly, silhouetted, into the last traces of clouded cerulean alibi,

while a weary sun completes its nightly descent, to suspire over

the glittering breast of a jaded sea, as twilight's lavender skies evanesce,

melding silently into a star-studded canopy of aubergine.
