Duration: 5'

Detail: Sunset by William Turner

Written for Genisis Sixteen


Rose, lilac and marigold

shade the clouds

with the light of the dying sun.


Like a giant lake the sky is reflected

in a mass of rippling grey coats

with black umbrella lilies.


Iris, violet and lavender

paint the raincoats

with the first of summer frocks.


(Leo Geyer, 2014)
