Cocktails At Sunset

Cocktails At Sunset

A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw

On the deck of Caryl Anna
Sipping Alabama Slammers
Eyes in awe of setting sun

Flamingo pink greets violet hues
Shots of darkest petrol blues
Surrounding islands in the sky

Reflections on Marina's water
Not a ripple there to alter
All that's peace and harmony

Ducks are dozing, birdsong absent
Heavy is the sound of silence
As the day makes way for night.

Chris, you really know how to do nature scenes. The description of the sunset here creates a veritable painting in the reader's eye. The last two stanzas could be a tranquilizer (if read in coordination with a glass of merlot) for the wired up commuter upon arriving home. Well done, although I thought "petrol blues" was something the western nations get every time the Arabs raise the price of a barrel of oil.

The stunning sunset you describe in this beautiful tercet has driven me to my nearby beach! At least in my mind for today, but this weekend for sure. "Flamingo pink," "petrol blues," love the imagery. I also think you described the stillness, the absolute stillness so beautifully! Added to my favorites.

Duuuuuuuuudddddeeeeee....
Is it okay to say I really admire and want to replicate your silly good descriptions of color...?
NOT STEAL...

Do not want to get in trouble again for saying that, but to me, it is a very large compliment...
to have people look-up to and deign to re-create your writing, i loveee ittttt....
I LOOK for how people use colors...
You keep blowing me away and taking this kid to school...
Effing flamingo-pink!!!
Petrol-blue...
Genius...
How have I not heard flamingo-pink in a song yet is BEYOND me...
Maybe I have...
