Impression (August contest)

The evening sky lights up
In brilliant flames of orange
Turning hazily to gold
As they go to caress the sea.

Approaching islands of clouds…
Sweep quickly overhead

And each island, catching
The slanting rays of sun,
illuminates in sky!

I like your poem.
It is quiet as a pretty sunset is.
I would remove some words and move others around pushing myself further. I'm not sure I would keep it as quiet. You write as you do and me, me. As I said in the beginning it is a pretty and quiet poem and if that is what you aimed for then well done.
Best of luck for you,
Later,

hello Mark.
quiet, yes, it should be soothing as a beautiful sunset is soothing.

I enjoyed this poem very much. It would be nice to read it on a warm day at sunset and then just lay back and dream a little about that beautiful sunset. Some nice soft music playing too. I want to read it again.
