I had never seen a sunset like it before;
Lilac- the sky
Orange- the clouds.
Soft purple rimmed with blush pink-
So soft and romantic, like the flowers of a bride’s bouquet.
Glowing orange and lined with fiery gold
Like a fire set among a meadow of flowers
Burning but never harming the delicate petals.
Slowly, so subtly it changed without detection,
The sky deepened to violet.
The clouds became red.
Still beautiful- so beautiful.
I watched, mesmerized, the lilac sky.
