Arizona Skies

Flashes of gold
like eruptions of fire
appear on the far horizon
Arizona skies ~ what a feast!

Turning in the twilight
to rivers of lava
yet so cool ~ a contrast
of imagery to the senses.

Creating a channel of
cool aqua as the light fades
in a timely fashion
the lava disappears.

Replaced by the obsidian
skies of night
with stars like diamonds
interspersed with silence ~ as a backdrop.
