Sunset Still

Cloud shrouded sea, 

stroking the land with wisps of cool damp air.

Throws off her grey work wear;

clothing herself in richness 

prepares to meet the night. 


Driving home from town, willing the sunset to linger until I can capture it with my camera. All day the misty clouds have hugged the land until sunset when sea and sky put on their glad rags and bid goodnight!

Sleep well until the first fingers of light steal beneath the curtain bidding you “Good morning”.
