Sapphire And Serpentine (Darkness Claims Its Place)


Dusky haze of evening

Falling on the day

Distant rivers

Sapphire and serpentine

Winding languorous

Stark against the deeper

Blended backdrop

Yet somehow painted

Gently in the frame

Just whispers

In the crowd

As the darkness

Claims its place
