Freakish weather

Yesterday evening, I experienced an unusual weather phenomenon. It was about nine o’clock and I noticed that the kitchen seemed flooded with light. Looking out the back, there was an extraordinary sight. Part of the sky was black, the horizon blue and the sun setting from behind the house. It had been a grey day but the garden looked bright as at noon, as though a heavenly spotlight were trained on it. Pink flowers glowed bright red while blue flowers had turned purple. I gazed for ages and felt calm and uplifted, a mood which stayed with me.
