The tones of African light.

The tones of African lightThat split day from night.
The vibrant hues spew
In an instant,
Glowing, almost volcanic,
Glorious images,
Changing, chasing with haste…
Breath taking from
Sunset to sunrise.
Darkness falls 
And pitches us in
Deepest black.
The stars only play 
The merest part.
A speckled black velvet sheet
Cloaks our world until we wake.
