Another Sunset ~ tanka

Another sunset scurries
across the horizon
to take daylight to someone else.
Alone, I watch twilight expose stars
and wonder if lies still sparkle in his eyes.

Thought-provoking, Susie. I wonder what you mean by "lies" in his eyes ... perhaps betrayal? You have expressed a powerful emotion evoked by a beautiful sunset.

That is just beautiful, I can picture the sunset

That sparkle is so tempting, even when you know that it's all lies. I like it, Susie.
