The silhouettes of summer

What is more beautiful

Than the setting of a glowing sun

On a fiery summer’s evening —

And the perfect ending

To a perfect day?

    What is more beautiful than the image of setting sun? -seen a few sunrises that came close or just as. But sunsets always have that moody quiet feeling about them.

    • He would swim every single day if I let him. He needs to dry out every now and then so he usually swims 3-4 times a week, but if it’s very hot, then every day.
