A sky burns red

Poetry By: A Stranger

Ever sit down and watch a day go by? I did.

A sky burns red

Cleansing today

Becoming tonight

As darkness sets in

The Children of the Night

Can be seen

Specks littering the horizon

Dancing ever so lightly

On their sister Aurora's dress

A caressing glow on black velvet

A sky begins to brighten

And children fade away

Their romance and their sparkle

Tucked away for it is becoming day

A changing of the guard

A sincere silver making way

For burning gold

A sky burns red

The farewell of last night

Off-set by the greeting of tomorrow

And on the wind, floats the sound of rustling paper
