The Blush of Sunset

Just as the eye of brilliant Sun
Sets behind the western hills,
The sky clouds blush as
Though they read my thoughts,
Shift from gold to red to pink….

The rushing dusk swaddles Earth,
Unwraps its loveliness
As one unwraps a gift, waiting to see
The precious giving of the open heart—
Waiting for the first star
To shine within your eyes….
To glow upon my cheek.
