I don’t know if you have ever seen a sunset,
the way I have many times before,
either going down a mountain or by the outline of the sea.
I always wondered why the colors blend,
Bringing on dusk with a different view,
Dusk being the entrance to another time zone.
I wondered if the Earth wasn’t a circle but a square,
If I could just walk towards the sunset and touch it before it goes down somewhere below the Earth’s hemisphere.
And I imagine that from where you stand,
you would see the outline of a shadow,
which would be me,
and I would be known by painters as the Sunset Silhouette

Yesterday, I received a beautiful image of the sunset from one of my social media friends, and I thought about this poem I had written years ago. It is one of my favorite poems.I used to watch the sunrises and sunsets as a child. We lived by the seaside and every time I had the honor of witnessing the grand entrances and exits of the day, it seemed like the first time I was experiencing it.
Have a nice day – shobana-
