Window frames sweated
in the sticky heat of late summer’s evening.
Bats darted through the boughs of silhouetted trees.
The sky was bloodshot and the glassy surface of the sea
reflected the haze of a lazy Sunday.
Stars peppered the night sky like grape-shot.

So this is my offering.
The images were from last night’s sunset as viewed from the upstairs of the house.
