Image for the poem Sunset


The sun slowly climbs down from the sky  
It drops behind the peak of the mountain  
And gently touches the surface of the sea  

The amber and purplish sunset fascinates me  
In a few minutes, darkness will cover the land  
The sun will disappear and crickets will chirp  

I stand on the slope overlooking the valley  
Itís so peaceful and quiet out here at dusk,  
But I canít ignore the loneliness in my heart  

The beauty of sunset temporarily eases my pain  
Evenfall is my solace when Iím on this ridge  
I wish I could follow the sunset across the globe  

The appearance of sunset is like nothing else  
I travelled westward to see this awesome sight  
On this calm crepuscule my spirit is satisfied
