The Ragtag Daily Prompt today is BARK
I considered this from various angles, now here’s my response:
I may have journeyed far and wide,
viewed many sights of worth;
I still call a prairie at sunset
the prize-winning scene on earth.
A ring of fire as the sun dips low
blushing the clouds on high
while waves of mauve and coral
wash over the western sky
In the dusk the bark of a coyote,
a nighthawk’s winnowing flight,
the sleepy coos of mourning doves
as twilight turns to night.
