Twiglet #198

A twiglet’s aim is to “prompt” a thought. If something comes to mind, write. A polished piece isn’t the goal; creativity is. Leave a link, if you’d like your work read, but comments should not be expected.

  1. Sunset Over the Ocean

    Psychedelic orangey orb in a darkening sky
    striated with cerise and cherry red splotches
    distorted image mirrored on a choppy sea
    the susurrant sun slides toward the horizon
    until it touches that fine line between
    sky and sea.

    My expectation is to hear a sizzling hiss
    of flame extinguished in clouds of hot mist
    but the color drains and disappears silently.
    Inky darkness overhead, stars blink into view
    and I am alone in reverent harmony with the
    sky and sea.


    1. Susurrant new word for me – thanks. Kind of like gossamer for light.
      Lovely. When we visited Maui the sun sank quickly. But at the Jersey shore it does sink slower. 🙂
