Crimson Horizon




Shadows summon

Smooth sapphire spheres

Adorned with a ruby ribbon

The flakes of the sun stare at golden candles

Light a pale crimson horizon

Laconic laughter lifts

Lilac lotion

    I love the progression of this poem, Alan. As Kim says, it is ‘melancholy.’

    Beautiful picture, beautiful verse. Ending with ash seems like awaiting rebirth. Like a Phoenix?

    Thank you all for your comments, to be honest i am never really sure if you should explain poems you right or just leave them to speak for themselves. Saying that this was written as picture of the erosion of the world and its lies into my heart and soul. I hope you like it, sometimes everything turns to ash if you let in despair.

Thank you for reading my poems. Please don't feel you have to comment. I enjoyed writing them, I hope you enjoyed reading them, Be blessed.
