orange evening clouds
behind green-brown limbs:
†††† †
fades to ashen eaves
before a dusk-gray sky:
charcoal sketch
†††††††† †
cedes to formless night:
all is clearly drawn
with disappearing ink †

These words took me some place else for a couple minutes. Good work. I especially like the opening stanza.
