In the Glowing- Sailing Bailey Island's Bay

Watching a schooner sail at sunset reminds me of Robert Burns romantic poetry on the gloaming. Gloaming is an old English word for dusk. At twilight I stood on the shore filled with nostalgic wonder. Here are photographic and poetic results of my musing...

On a Ocean Breeze

Wearing a tiara of sunset's golden rays
Queen Anne's Lace
Elegantly sways...
Gently on an ocean breeze.

Summer Horizon

On the precipice of summers' eve,
A schooner in full regalia
Rides a misty wisp of dusk,
Heading towards an amethyst horizon...

Charting Pathways

Splendid now upon the glowing,
The schooner majestically
Cruises down Bailey Island's bay
And into the gloaming.

In Closing

Here is a link to a gloaming song-poem by Robert Burns..."The lea-rig"

Lovely, your lines stir the imagination and make the heart flutter. Do you write first and make the photographs later?
