How Amazing


I was watching a
red
sun sink into the sky,
as cool fingers of wind stroked my cheeks.
The strip of
blue
that was the ocean from a distance
slowly turned
purple,
the whole world shifting its
colours,
the mountains peaks in jagged
silhouettes.
Soon, it was
dark,
the distant city
lights
came out and
the sky that stretched above
me was a deep, velvet
navy, 
marked with a drifting
lemon
moon and dotted with
peppermint 
stars.

I thought to myself,
how
amazing.
