When the Sun Goes Down.....


Every night
The horizon lights up
Swirls of pink and orange
Fading to blue and purple

Few bother to look anymore
At a blessing
That only comes once a day

Each sunset is different
No two exactly alike
Difference flows throughout
While it is the only similarity

Over the ocean
Or through the sky scrapers
Out on the prairie
Or in an apartment

You can still see a piece
A piece of something
Something never to return
A sunset

For the colors are shimmering
For a moment they stay
Only to disappear into change
Change just as beautiful as the last

This is why
No matter where you go
One thing remains the same,
A difference in sunsets

In your very own sunset

      I like your very own sunset...it's just beautiful. The colors are beautiful, it's framed beautifully. It's beautiful. I like the poem you put with it too. How true it is.

      We have no sun to set here today ;-(

      Great sunset!! I don't always take the time to look at the sunset just like I don't stop and smell the roses as often as I should. Too busy weeding, deadheading, etc! ;)
