Western Sunset by Sue Wood

The sunsets have been spectacular this week and are totally inspiring. Here is an excerpt from a poem I wrote last year called

Western Sunset.

Western Sunset

On this amazing eve, with air so still,

I watch in wonder at this sight to thrill.

My visual senses watch colours ablaze,

Sun sinking down in a dramatic haze.

Merging pinks with fading gold,

Colours so vibrant and hues so bold,

Light up the sky and create a show,

Of mountains and hills, mauve they glow.

Islands afar, in shades of grey,

Entice to embark, discover and stay.

Peace and pleasure fill the mind,

With aesthetic bliss, a vision refind.
