Red Evening Sky

We sail away as the blood pumping through our veins
Direct us toward the heart of the land
The soft currents carry our souls along the burning sky
Radiant as a woman’s red lips as she kisses a warm cheek
We leave a world behind us in shadows
Searching for a new kind of golden
Our heart beats for adventure
And the sky reflects the nectar of our souls


Poem was inspired by the painting of "The Red Evening Sky" by Emil Nolde
