illume innate

may the twilight sky’s hues

be as whisper sheer

as the pansy’s petal

when held to the sun

may its purples

be like popsicle stains

on your tongue

on your shirt

on the sidewalk

may its tangerines

be like the juices of rains

on your window panes

may its ceruleans

be like the memories

of your joy tears

filling puddles

in flowing streams

that return

to reflect the sky’s beaming palette

for yet another day

  1. Beautiful! Describes tonight’s sunset colors as I sat at the bay with thoughts alike, watching my grandson’s tongue and lips turn shades of purples as his snow cone dripped down him.
