Day 22 – Painter’s Sunset/Painted Sunset

Today’s Prompt: Write a poem about nature in honour of Earth Day. I can’t decide which title to choose – in fact, I struggle more coming up with most of the titles than I do the poems…

Painter’s Sunset/Painted Sunset

by Angel Dawson

Orange blends into lilac

As the giant watercolour washes the sky,

A dreamy canvas stretches

From the horizon to twinkling stars on high.

Agate and amethyst light

Meet and blend into magical fiery hues,

And slowly the gloved-hand, Night,

Drags it deep into velvet, inky dark blues


Perhaps you would let me know which of the two titles you would choose? And for now, that’s all folks! It’s 1am and I am ‘zausted, so the rest will have to wait – I think I should take that bite and start posting as soon as I get home from work!

About One Day Closer To My Dream Life

Hi, I'm Angel, and I'm so glad you stopped by. Although Life took me down another road, since childhood I have loved writing and the power of language to evoke feelings and memories, to communicate with the hundreds of people we come into contact with and build relationships with along the way, and to impart ideas with. It's high time that I reunite with my old pleasure and passion, and start writing down all those words that are rushing around aimlessly in my head, jostling with each other to be heard. Sometimes we most fear doing what we love most in case it doesn't work out as we hope, but sometimes we just need to take that chance regardless! Who knows, maybe those words and plots and characters will take me on a journey that others will get to share with me, and lead me one step closer to living my dream life... I hope so!
