Shadows- Souls at Sunset

Here is a peek at my husband Mike's breath-taking sunset photography and my own ocean-side poetry reflections...

In the Evening

In the stillness... soft twilight,
History lingers along the village shoreline.
Cottage homes are now hidden,
Fading with the evening
Into the darkness of the forest pine.

Souls at Sunset

Memories like
The ever changing colors of the sea...

Fragile is time
In these last moments of light,
The soul's yearning-
Golden-bright.

Delicate Earth

A rippling rainbow on the evening tide,
The fluttering shadows of dusk...
Life measured delicately on each earth turn.
Day ends... it must-
Beneath the soaring wings of the sky.

In Closing

A Night Thought by William Wordsworth

Hello siva-:o)-and indeed I do enjoy your comment- because I did write this poem inspired by Mikes pictures- usually I write a poem and then find a picture to suit it- but I really wanted to share these very special photos of Mike's with you all- so I wrote a poem to do just that!-:0)...thank you my dear friend.

Golden Sunset, Hearts now join,
Chorusing in love the Girl is Mine.
Showing the Universe I am home today,
This is my love here is what I say.

I wake each morning with smile on my face,
Showing Passion of love in sweet embrace.
As I walk in resplendence in colour of love,
Showing the passion that reigns Above.

With splashes of Blue in dead of night,
Showing the Orange that's out of sight.
With Roses of Passion as cool winds flow,
I rise again steadily from Heart of Sea below.

Climbing up in passion with Copper enclave,
Where I work in passion as no body's slave.
Bringing fiery performance that shows off my heart,
This is who I am, the Sun, just world apart.

As birds now sing in chorus of love,
I look into her eyes from heavens Above.
Pulling the calmness that rising Heart of Sea,
As I gently rise up to show my true family.

With colours now brightening showing the way,
I am who I am with love here to stay.
With leaves all Green and life world apart,
I have everything including my beating heart.

For with the music I come out as One,
The world just knows me as the Golden Sun.
In the tranquil Sunrise I bring life for the Day,
But in evening's resplendence in Wife's arms I stay.

With passion of life that is true and pure,
Its the beauty of Creation in perfect endure.
Break of Dawn awaits as life does now see,
I am both Sunrise and Sunset giving Life for free.

Feel like you spent the whole dusk -
Till night-
with the sun-
Saying good-bye and
Came back with a big sigh-
A sigh of relief and sadness-
Thinking about the next day and chores-

Very quiet piece of poem...Thank you Delicia

Each moment changes, it dies and gives way to another.Our looks die, and change into another as we progress, a beautiful phenomena, your poem and orange pictures are generating these thoughts.

Yes I love using Mike pictures best of all...but he works two jobs- and often has no time- so now and then I must wonder on my own to find a picture for my poems...I love this page- it means a lot to me that you do too...thanks Bev...
