Lilac and Orange

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.
