City Sunset

After a clear blue day some whispery clouds had blown in

There was just a little sunset red left above the city skyline.

Tall buildings were beginning to show their night-time finery,

Replacing the waving eucalyptic green of the trees.

The busy road traffic was tiring and outside the frame

The river ripples, reflecting the evening’s new darkness.

Moonrise is hours away and the stars are too far.

An Earth-bound firmament will suffice

To show me my city for the next few hours.

Sunset over Perth tonight. I just intended to post the picture, but some words spilled out as well.

  1. Amazing photo, Archie … and fabulous whispery clouds (nice words).


  2. Thank you, Azahar. Luck has a lot to do with getting good snapshots. Of course, the more you take, the better chance you have of getting a good one 🙂


  3. I saw that! Just last week and it’s still a beautiful sight.
