Evening in each Direction

Look West:
A golden band paints the western sky
Grey threads drawn through,
Soft edges dissipate.
Leaves which earlier were twisted and wind-blown
Cast silhouettes;
The black moorland outline
Is defined
Like the back of a sleeping giant.
Look North:
Cyan Blue and misty grey
Softness as the light diminishes;
A world of stillness broken
By the fleeting shapes that
Cross the sky.
Look South:
The distant hills
Of violet hue
Where the land meets the sea
Look East.
Beyond the dark shapes of trees
A whisper of light
Pulsates once then twice
Through the night
The lighthouse beam
Twenty five miles away
Look west:
Night.
