The Sunset

Well, the sun isn't quite on the horizon yet, but it takes me back 18 years ago today to a beautiful sunset I witnessed while living in Orlando. Following is a poem I wrote in an attempt to describe how vivid it was...

THE SUNSET

The sunset that night
was brilliantly orange
it’s enough to take
your breath away.

The sunset that night
held a bit of mystery
intriguingly beautiful
all colors alive.

As time passes on
the sunset fades
and darkness falls
across this place.
