Sunset Blues

In the darkening orangey hue
i see you:
face generic, hair genetic.

– Chito L. Aguilar

SUNSET BLUES

remnants of golden sunset –
filigreed beams of horizon frameless.
in the darkening orangey hue
i see you:
face generic, hair genetic.

your image, in a maze of haze,
just a trace in the blaze
disappearing.

ocher lines criss-cross
ions of woes and eons of lows
in this emptied beer bottle,

like my empty mind
as I gaze in daze
at the shifting shades
of the slowly emptying sun.

then light empties… into night.

– between
ions of woes and eons of lows
are amber tows.

  2. Just. So. Gorgeous! “eons of lows”–we’ve seen them, haven’t we? Love your words, photos, the choice of music was PERFECT! Best 2:56 I’ve spent in a very long time…you have made this last day of my 65th year a JOY!
