A pale orange sunset

faded by mist

blurring day with night,

land with sea.

A snapshot of a Turner painting.

Same faded colours,

same misty blur.

But no masts from tall ships

on the horizon,

no windmills standing ready

to grind corn.

A snapshot with the same palette,

the same faded glory

but the masts are windmills 


to bring more light.
