Goodbye 2018

Last Sunset of 2018

Watching the sun set

Filing away memories

Of another year

Truth or Fiction?

Things are not always as they seem.

What we see may not be what is.

Sometimes eyes play tricks,

And our mind does also.

We need to ask ourself,

Is reality

Truly what

My eyes do

See?

Belated Beauty

Creamsicle Sky, sunset, Oregon

Celebrating late

National Creamsicle Day

Creamsicle sunset

Haiku

Tonite we had the most beautiful sunset in different shades and layers of orange, peach and cream colors. The camera on my phone just didn’t capture the colors exactly as I saw them because as I looked at it I thought of a Creamsicle which I have always loved to eat!

A quick Google search told me that National Creamsicle Day was on August 14th which was two days ago, but the sky was cloudy then and there wasn’t a sunset, so I guess God decided to celebrate it late and gave us this creamsicle sky tonight! 😊

Sizzling Summer Sunset

Summer Sunset on July 4th

July 4th

God’s Fireworks

Light up the horizon

And set nighttime heavens soundlessly

Ablaze!

Cinquain

(As our neighborhood and city was putting on a very noisey fireworks display, God entered with the most beautiful brilliant sunset that awed many)

Seashore Sunset Senses

Sunset at Depoe Bay, Oregon, photo by Vivian Marcin 2018

Breathing in so deeply

Scents of seaweed and crisp air

As gulls seranade

And ocean foam caresses

Sand covered toes

Sunset glistens like gold

Shimmering on waves

That meet rocks and waiting cheek

With a salty kiss goodnight
