Raymond A. Foss Poems
Back to Poems Page
Apricot and Periwinkle by Raymond A. Foss
Apricot and periwinkle
Robin’s egg and salmon.
Moments of
Yesterday’s sunset
Frozen in my mind.

No Nikon or Kodak,
No disposable or instamatic.
Images captured on
Rods and cones this time,
Not on emulsion.
Fine grained
And enduring.
Synapses growing.

Soft shadows
And wispy clouds.
Bands of color and mood
Share the sky
With small birds
And a damselfly
Before the dark.

Stars create a canopy
After the light fails.
The sunset now
A part of my
To cherish.
