The Mountain and the Star

Rising from the fire of sunset
like a phoenix rising from the ashes
of dusk
red morphed into orange
yellow, white
into the sky-blue
aqua, teal
darkness, comfort of night

the mountain looms
darkness below
darkness above
stark contrast against a myriad of colors behind it
a pinnacle rising in the evening skyline

and the goddess rising o'er the flanks of the spire
Venus watching the light fade
on the edge of the horizon
taking in the visual lightshow

with the approval of the heavens.
