Another Fine Sunset

golden light over black
      streaks of light
   as the sun sets

behind distant hills

   we watch that show
in happy appreciation

sunset is such a wonder


maybe it's metaphor
      the way our lives
   may someday end

great beauty as our own
      world goes dim


all the day long we see
colours in their beauty

   a world of rainbows
until we find darkness


golden light over black
      streaks of light
      as the sun sets

behind distant hills

   we watch that show
in happy appreciation

  1. This is beautiful, Murray! However, I think that after the darkness we will see the golden light overtake the darkness.
