Evening Light

Ribbons of pastel colours
Chalked across the sky
The heat dissipates
The colour intensifies
The silhouette of moorland ridge
Stars aligned and waiting
A crescent moon aglow
A hung stillness
Dampness creeps
And night waits in the wings
Until black
Is chalked across the sky
Enveloping all.
