Aesthetic Realism Online Library Poetry by Karen Van Outryve


A blazing winter sunset, as seen from a window in a very tall building, made for a feeling that the moment is at one with eternity. Even as it fades and disappears, the fidelity of the sun can be felt. —Karen Van Outryve


    The Red Sun

    The earth now turns
    And we no longer see the sun.
    But it was a red sun.
    It was a red sun!
    So red
    So red
    I never will forget
    Though now we only see
    The light reflected from the clouds above
    And they appear to be
    The very floor of Heaven.
    The clouds are glowing
    The red sun is there.
    The red sun will be there
