Blazing Banner

Blazing summer sunset in Oregon-June 2020
Sunset June 2020

Across the heavens

Stretches a banner of fire

Blazing summer sun

Haiku

All day I enjoyed the presence and the heat of the Summer Sun that has once again visited my area in the Pacific Northwest. I love summer and sunshine!

Last night that summer sun left us in a blaze of fiery red, orange and yellow glory, stretching across the western horizon like a banner. It was amazing to see the beauty of it!

I was able to capture it with my cell phone camera but the picture just doesn’t show the full depth of its intense color.

“The Starry Night”

Down below

We dont really know

What swirls above

And dwells thereof

In that starry night

That lies beyond our sight

Among the clouds of white

Floating in a sea of blue

Are things hidden from our view

We can dream and contemplate

Research, study and debate

Yet we’ll not truly know my friend

Until our life reaches its earthly end
