Pink and Purple Streaks

By Camille Lin, Age 12, California


I sit in the shallow water,
Tracing images in the soft, wet sand.
An explosion of gold.
It comes and goes,
But the sight still amazes me.
Sinking past the horizon,
Until nothing is left
But a faint glow
And a light alizarin sky.
As the sky darkens,
I stand up and brush
The sand off my legs.
I leave the picture behind, but the image
Is fixed,
A pink
And purple
Streaked sky, and a sun,
Just about,
To set.
