“Sky Blue Pink”

Moonrise at Sunset


“Sky Blue Pink”


Desert beauty all around

Nothing but highway sound


To the west the sunset

To the east the moon rise, day and night have met


Full moon rising in the darkening sky

The sun below the horizon, sets ablaze the sky


Sky blue pink as far as the eye can see

The silhouette of Joshua trees


The road goes on ahead

Listening to the whir of tire tread


Stars appear one by one

Another day is done


Sky blue pink is what I think

As the sun passes beyond the brink
