Red HorizonPosted: May 14, 2013
Star clusters light up the mellow dark space,
Furnishing the distant depths with a light red horizon.
The night is haunted by memory flashes of your face;
The one spark and only light I long for —
But our love has been a cold case
Since the thunder came upon,
Turning silence to noise.
So before laying it all to rest
I’ll look again to the red horizon
And watch it absorb all light and sound.
