Sunset from the top of the world

I stand there on the peak.
the sun a bright yellow ball of fire 
slowly falling out of the sky.
clouds turn.
yellow,
orange,
haze of red.
then comes twilight.
a blanket of stars.
pin pricks of light,
on a black velvet sky.
The moon,
lighting the path as I hike down the mountain.
