Ocean Poem

I wrote this just after having seen an amazing sunset on the sea.

I live in Alaska and the sunsets are so beautiful on the water. I can totally relate to the part at the end where it says the night devours the magic but I still stand in awe.

Magical Sunset

Published: June 2011

As the day ends to rest
The sunset does its best
Setting on fire the lively waves
Colouring orange the nature he saves
its pure ancient glorious perfection.

The great ocean will receive
The burning sun who's going to leave.
Slowly comes the night
Devouring that magic light:
we are still suspended in a great delight.

I couldn't have described it better. Such a great use of words that make you feel as if you're living the moment.

This poem reminds me of when my boyfriend took me to a date. He took me to the beach and he had me blindfolded...and we got to watch the sun set. It was so romantic and everytime I looked at him it took me to a happy place...
