Afterglow (yuuyake) (late summer kigo)

There, where eagles fly,
Heaven’s gold is boldly splashed
As red orb sinks west

© C.L. Hanna

daylight fades away
father sun is traveling on to the west
paradise regained

Here is my attempt:

golden orange sky
that lovely color we feel
after making love

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
