The Sunset

I saw the most amazing sunset this evening. The clouds were layered on top of one another like peony petals; thin, transparent membranes with minutes to live. Blue grabbed hold of purple, gulping a final breath, then eased out streaks of color that skipped along the tops of the high-rise buildings in downtown Atlanta. I was on the 16th floor of a group of three. But for those 10 setting moments, the city faded back, letting nature take a final bow.

There are still four more days left to the Gift Show and then I'll get back to some artwork of my own.
