How do you capture
living, changing color
the shades of

sunset, across the dome,
the panorama, the full circle
catching sight of the horizon
between the buildings
around the compass dial

Shades of lavender, of plum,
of lilac, of heather

Floral shades as the blue
becomes darker, as the yellow
fades, loses strength
dies before the night.
