Summer candy

There is nothing more delicious

Than the candy stripes

Of a late summer sunset

Candy sky copy

That softens from pink

Into orange ribbons,

Orange stripes

And finally melts

Into reflected peace.

Final sky

  10. Lovely! We have not even had early summer yet this year. I can’t wait to see a proper sunset again!

    I think I have finally figured out why I was not able to comment here. I hope!😉
    Love your Bleeding Heart images, especially the Dancing Ladies, ingenious.

  14. Magnificent!!! Don’t you love it when you see a gorgeous sunrise or sunset and think, “it can’t get any more beautiful than this”… and then the colors change or deepen and lo, it does! This sunset of yours makes me think of all the times our skies tricked me into thinking they couldn’t possibly get more breathtaking.🙂 And how wonderful that we get to see it twice – in the sky and reflected in the water. Just spectacular!

    And this is definitely the best kind of candy – eye candy! No calories, no cavities, plenty for everyone to enjoy until it’s gone.🙂
