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.

City Sunset
