Evening delight

Evening delight

The setting of sun
leaves behind a brilliant trace
of hues and reflection
enough to delight our evening.

The flight of birds
following the last ray of light
on their way back home
engrosses the backyard sky.

The shades of nightfall
gracefully grease down the earth
before darkness swallows quite
the evening delight in twilight.


Footnote: 

The picture was shot at my great grandmother’s native village and this was a view, so fascinating  from our relative’s backyard.
