Sunset Soliloquy


Sunset Soliloquy


Talking to yourself

I see

Mind if I

listen in

on your sunset


High clouds

Vibrant hues

Muted tones

Colorful speech

with hidden clues

Streaks of red

Scattered rays

from impurity

of frazzled days

Such magnifying


allowing the Source

of Light to give

your day’s end



The day I took these photos, I had been thinking, during worship service at church, to write a poem about sunsets.  We were singing while the words were being projected on a sunset picture.  It made me think of how the Lord can create beauty no matter what our day was like… During the day, if we bring before him our clouds, impurities, and fair skies, then his Light shines through us as we submit to his love and grace.  I was so excited about the idea: but, being over 50, I promptly forgot!  Later; however, on the very same day, this sunset called me outside to the front garden…

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
