Ridges ablaze, mountaintops are on fire
Ornamented with magenta and gold
Adorned in formal evening attire
Puffed with bursting accents of marigold.
Blown from broiling furnaces of molten glass
Erubescent hues dance and fuse fiercely
Skillfully crafted in a master class
Settling into streaks of luxury.
Oils layered like a painter’s pallet.
Strokes of sapphire cast with well worn brushes.
Colorful clouds covering like a blanket
Moving with the ever-changing canvas.
The artisan of the sunsets abounds
In creativity, God’s presence resounds.
