The sun hung low in the heavens
before it proclaimed its nocturnal rest
sliding gently behind earth's round orb
daylight slips into evening dusk
sun gives its last burst of bright light
sprinkling the clouds with kaleidoscopic colors
decorating and painting the land of living skies
a radiant sunset
creating an evening of pure prairie perfection.
