LONG STREAKS OF GOLD

It was disappointing.

 

The sunset show

received a blow

as a curtain of dark clouds

began dispelling possibilities

for our seeing

another beautiful descent.

 

But

just before we left the scene

long streaks of gold

began to appear in the west

slicing the gray into pieces.

 

We were surprised

and did not turn away.

 

We stayed a little longer

lingering

before twilight came

happy that our expectations

had been fulfilled.
