Sunset's Ghost - Poem by Richard George

Lilac clouds, a wash of green
At daylight's end:
When west is dark, to northward
A heat-haze aurora
Silhouettes our roof-slopes.
Beautiful, but it chills me:
We have made her burn with fever,
The sky, our mother.

    The title drew me in, and I was not disappointed. The picture was not only lovely, but unusual. Good work.

    Great poem, Richard. I like the striking contrast in the final lines, nice imagery too.
