The sun sets on Solstice day, the hills of Rochdale bound and staked.
The view is trussed and set ablaze
Before being snuffed out in shadow.

A friend took this photograph of the sunset over Manchester from a railway bridge in Collyhurst. It’s a fantastic shot which I think deserves to be shared. Evening descending with an apocalyptic threat.

So seldom sun, burning away the slate grey skies.
Calling people out from the catacombs
like unreasoning moths to a flame.
Last night’s sunset, taken from Collyhurst, looking towards West Manchester and Salford.
