Sunset

Sunset- Riverside

On the green patch of grass she sat, by the Hudson river
admiring the sunset, a zillionth time
among many thoughts that captured her conscious,

the most profound of all, or she did rather call it a desire,
to fly like a bird in the sky,
peering through the myriad hues of the setting sun,

kissing goodbye to the soft yellows and orange
before night sets in and stars sparkle
