Lighthouse Keeper by Ingrid Mathews

Review this piece

A gull’s gaze is held
In solitary repose
Toward the enfolded sun’s last breath

Casting hues of lavender and crimson wide
Beneath the shifting clouds

Leaving behind a smoldering glow
Whose dying embers are quenched at last
by night’s hushed and yielding embrace

And daylight’s breath is no more
