Prairie Sunset-By Phyllis Babcock--Canada

Prairie Sunset

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
   nature's design
             a radiant sunset
creating an evening of pure prairie perfection.

Phyllis Babcock was born in Saskatchewan, Canada in 1951 and currently resides in Regina with her husband. She has been blessed with two wonderful sons and daughter-in-laws. She has two grandsons and two granddaughters. She started writing poetry in 2004 and joined Poetry Soup site in 2006. She has been published in two anthologies, On Butterfly Wings and Snippets. Her work has also appeared on Poetry.com and in a local seniors’ newspaper. She feels writing has been a wonderful journey, meeting many new poets and writers along the way.
