Skywatch - silk purses and sow's ears

Licking the scaffolding of the stirring city,
the burgeoning glow
Trumpets into the heavens,
Tip-toes across glassy Black Wattle and
Traps its beauty in the panes of White Bay.
Skywatchers around the world

I like your sky watch pictures. The lighting makes the windows of the factory building appear like copper.
