‘East Coast Colour’ by Muriel Cowan
Another local entry in our poetry competition:
EAST COAST COLOUR
A smoky rose suffusion.
Fading to water melon pink.
And the afterglow that lingers of
a bossy West Coast sunset
Delaying the appearance
of the evening star
Until Mother Moon arises and chases away
That persistent, gaudy, Westie.
And then gathers up sister star
and suspends her left hand down
into a fashionable midnight blue sky.
