A Tangerine Sun

A tangerine sun
Came to rest awhile
Upon the tranquility of a placid sea
Where it sipped at the waters
A’shimmer in the crepuscular haze
As they lapped at the distant horizon
That drew a nebulous circle
For to skirt the expanse of molten bronze
As it freely coruscated
Beneath the empyrean vault
Which arched a lavish canopy
Of a myriad flames of burnt sienna
That raced like a celestial river of fire
Above a lofty wall of clifftops in terracotta
Stark ‘gainst the monumental skies
Of a spectacular titian firmament
That gloried in the opulence unbounded
Of an extravagant eventide
