Beauty of sacred red
Wonder captured on scenic
canvas of skyline

Tempered glare peace and
quiet subdued in nature’s
nights of good living

Crimson night red hot
Conjures raucous actions found
of Eastern specials

  2. I like your Sunsets, Hank. The poem and the
    picture are both pretty. The picture makes
    me wonder what the sunrise has in store.

  8. The sacred and the profane join here, yet the poet speaks in love and calm under the sky that inspires him .... Nice.

  9. Sacred red...I suppose that's what it is especially after a monsoon washed up sky.

  13. That's how you must describe a wonderful sunset. Full of over the top names and colors. Awesome series on Sunset Hank.
