Almost Sunset

I don’t suppose
if I asked you would go;
wanted only to watch
the sun set.

The purple hue,
the parade of clouds
and you
so clear, crisp and clean;
an apple
and as delicious.

thanks! your comment describes pretty much what I was going for with this poem.

obviously modern in inspiration: I've always loved William Carlos Williams, and this poem was written as an echo of his simple yet awesome poetry.
