An artist captures the sunset light sequence at Skyspace designed by James Turrell.
Clouded comfort, in silence we lie,
And I know we are stardust,
a part of the sky.
A sun that’s set in its ways past,
On Light I reflect,
And I contrast.
Winds that carry the hues I dream,
You say I blush,
The colours scheme.
Dreams dance in sunshine chrome,
Sweet saffron spice,
you take me home.
Mystified you watch with rose-tinted gaze,
I’m a mahogany inferno,
Alive and ablaze.
And I feel blue in lavender and purple,
For even autumn leaves,
A fall is ephemeral.
Ink turns to darker shades of the night,
I wonder if we burn,
someone else’ s borrowed light.
The painter paints a shade we became,
An artist wonders,
if it needs a name.
As the colours rhyme to sing their ballad,
I knew I belonged,
In an artist’s palette;
