Oh, the soft golden light of sunset
And a hot haze over the hills of Sussex, England!
And to top it all —
The glowing sun
Turned tails and manes
To molten gold and bronze.

Sizzling orange, a glowing setting sun —
That’s when the sky romances the earth
With its beauty.

It was a gorgeous evening
When I went out for a walk with the dogs.
The summer light
Drizzled over grass and dogs alike
Lighting up the fields
With its honeyed glow
So that there was gold
Both in the sky
And in the grass.

It suddenly got cold – very cold.
This is what minus 20 C looks like in the front garden.
I love the way the pine trees glisten in the sun.
Later, when it had warmed up a few degrees,
I went for a walk in the nearby woods.
The setting sun turned this bush
Into a golden glass sculpture,
And the pastel sky
Was a pretty backdrop for a world
Turned beautiful by snow.
Still drowning in boxes – and a full week of work lies ahead too!

All you need to see
Is the fiery golden glow of a sunset
To realize how magnificent life really is.

Starts with a glow
While ribbons of cloud
And sink into

In nature, light is the colour
And when the sun bursts through winter gloom
It makes everything glow —
Even the humble frosted bud
And the honeyed tree,
Shining like a star.

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?

The sun – just like life –
Burns us not with its heat,
But with its passion,
And its golden glow.
(And yes, it was a very cold sunset!)

Tuesday morning was an unusual day in that we saw a partial eclipse of the sun.
I tried to capture the sun by hanging out of the bedroom window. No success as it was hidden behind the horizon.
But I was rewarded by a pink candy striped sky. A trumpet call announcing the start of the eclipse.
Then it gradually got darker and an eerie light crept across the sky
Making the bare tree branches glitter with remarkable light
And painting the sky with lovely swathes of glowing sepia.
A long time ago – so long that I can’t remember which country I was in at the time but I know it was a country far away – I did experience a total eclipse of the sun. It was in the time before global media and the Internet so I had no idea it was coming. The sun disappeared; the world went horribly dark in the middle of the day. It was terrifying and amazing all at the same time.
