the Iguana dance

Greenflash
      the Iguana dance
 
      . . .
 
 
Sun
      sets
fleeting emerald line
 
f   l   a   s   h   e   s
 
the day’s last light ray
a thin scale of iguana green
cuts across the bay
 
swirls in bands of silk blue shadows
to shore sways castanets bolero
to beds of crimson bougainvilleas
 
tiptoes to twilight into crescent moonlight
maracas dancing in a canopy of amber
fireflies singing nightingales in fields of starlights
 
into dawn
 
sparkling once more among the first rays
of the Sun now rising
 
                       . . .

Night of the Iguana, life goes on. Check out the 3-minute video of the greenflash. Maybe a yellow flash?
Updated video: Yellow purplish "greenflash" can be discerned as the sun disappears in this new video, now about 50 seconds longer. Sorry for the previous video posting.

There was a bit of wind when I took this video from the deck on the 8th floor of the hotel, the camera on top of the railing. Wind and water waves and the quiet surround make for a great sound soaking in the sunset with a bit of the mysterious chancy atmospheric sun flash. Thank you for catching the sound Robert.

Nice poem. However, I did not see a green flash when I watched the video. Hhmmmm!

LOL! My mistake, posted the wrong video. The one that's now shown is it, a yellow purplish "greenflash" can be seen as the sun disappears. This video is about 50 seconds longer. Thanks for liking Brod.
