Sunset Fires

  I happened to pass by the window the other evening, and colors were just spilling through. I looked through the curtain, and the sky was filled with gold, pink and red. I had to run and get my camera. Yep, I stood out in the freezing weather in my socks and snapped photos. Didn't want to miss a second. I would have shared them immediately, but the photo uploader was being finicky again. Ticking me off. So I just waited until it fixed itself.

  These colors reminded me of the time I wrote a poem about skies like this. Sunset Fires. It's featured in my first poetry collection, A Road To Count My Days By. There are so many natural beauties around us, giving wonder during a normal day. Sometimes it's just what we need. A moment of peace we we know we're going mad. (As I am, half the time).




Sunset Fires


The sun sets
Flinging out in robes of glory
Descending into the West
Seeming to say
Of the hours that have passed
“It is finished.”
Like the flames of wildfires
The fiery colors lick up
From the horizon
Spreading, filling the sky
And upon the plains casting fire.
The colors flicker and burn
Like a volcanic mire
Stirring within me
A most wild, and beautiful,
Yet terribly pained desire.

    Hope you enjoyed the photos. Soon I'll be posting interviews of Alex from Alex In Wanderland, and Nicole from Treasure Tromp! Both are very fun blogs that I enjoy VERY much! Very excited.
