Friday Poetry : November Sunset – Poem by Steven Federle

Black Friday Sunset Callan Kilkenny Ireland

Black Friday Sunset
Callan
Kilkenny
Ireland

About five o clock,
the warm November day
just stops.

Bright afternoon
slams into evening
not even pausing
for twilight.

Blue sky
dims quickly
to violet,

but over ragged black woods
the orange sun
lingers

black-friday-sunset-callan-kilkenny-nigel-borrington

Then suddenly bursts
into astonishing gold.

Blithely ascending
the bright crescent
claims the cool
velvet night.

Steven Federle
