Sunset

Trumpeting light

Is that an angel —

Or an elephant —

Trumpeting across the horizon at sunset?

(In other news, WordPress informs me

That I’ve been blogging for nine years!

Thank you for sticking with me all these years.)

Fire in the sky

The blazing sunset

Sets the world on fire

Umbrella.jpg

And paints the sky

In the colours of fire and passion.

Sunset love

UPDATE: I’m sick at the moment and won’t get round to visiting you all. 

Sometimes a sunset

Just makes you shout out with joy:

I ❤ sunsets!

The beaches of Conil in Spain

Were perfect for enjoying

A dazzling setting of the sun.

Golden nights

The long light evenings in Scandinavia

Are called white nights because it never really gets dark.

But for me, they will always be

Dazzling, honey’d golden nights,

Where the setting sun

Matches the red fur of my dogs.

Glitter

Everything’s better with a bit of nature’s glitter —

Whether it’s ducks at sunset;

The sizzle of the

Golden hour;

Bedazzled.jpg

Or the silken ripples

On the lake as the sun goes down.

Tangerine dream

Down by the lake,

The sun goes down in a burst of orange.

Simmie gets a burst of energy from the view —

And a swim in the cold water. He’s a happy boy!

Ruby prefers to sit and gaze

At the tangerine dream of another beautiful sunset.

Colour me violet

Sometimes a sunset doesn’t put on

A fiery show as the sun goes down;

Dogs.jpg

All you have to do is take your best girl, some dogs

And wait for the lilac and violet tints to paint the sky.

Spring honey

It was a blustery, spring evening —

But the light was delicious.

Silhouette.jpg

Ruby jumped up on her favourite high rock

As the honey’d rays of the sun glowed.

She was happy to look over her kingdom

Bathed in golden light.

(Simmie was busy running around in circles of joy.)

Winter ribbons

Winter doesn’t always dazzle;

Sometimes it is simply enough

To offer ribbons of light and soft colour.

The sun has set

The sun has set for the last time –

Leaving behind the beauty of a life well lived,

And a man much loved.

(I’m taking a break from this blog for a couple of weeks due to my father’s passing.

I’ll read your comments, but not reply.)
