Sunset Swallow

Dusk cloaks barn swallow paused

Shadows brilliant royal blue to black

Unaccustomed stillness heightens disguise

Shades winged percher’s post

Blends it, one with perch

Scarcely discernible from gathering gloom

Curious head-tilt unveils identity

Cinnamon breast beams sunset warmth

White belly glints reflected

Fleeting light from lingering rays.
