The Great Artist--By Martha Magenta--United Kingdom

The Great Artist

We sit and watch the perfect day's end.
Pageants of color as the sun descends,
Floats precarious with sanguine glow.
Flourishes of light, love and life bestows,
Paints the evening sky with wanton hues,
Crimson, scarlet, yellow, and blue.
The flamboyant artist thus emblazons
Heaven, then dips below the horizon,
Painting iridescent waves of the sea
That dance and glisten in a final spree,
While dark shadows stretch like lazy dreamers
Basking in deep red sunset streamers.
Now as darkness spreads like indigo dye,
A myriad stars adorn the night sky.

Martha Magenta lives in England, UK. Her poetry has appeared in The Reverie Journal, Whispers and Beaux Cooper; her haiku and senryu have been published in online journals, including Modern Haiku, Haiku Presence, and Chrysanthemum. She is owner of POETS poetry community on G+.      


  1. Hello Martha. I am not sure if you are new to Whispers or not, but if you are, welcome! I enjoyed "The Great Artist." It is truly a creative and artistic write. I really like that last line. Thank you for sharing and continued blessings!
