The Sun's Opus

In the final minutes 
of the day, 

we sit in quiet solemnity
bathing ouselves in the 
champagne-tinged glow 
trickling down through 
the elongated shadows of shore pine 
The sinewy limbs of the trees sway
in the breeze 
 embering lights 
lick our faces and eyes, 
dappling our bodies 
sunflames embed deeply in flesh 

Apollo’s fiery fingers open 
a rift in the clouds 
gloriously engorge themselves 
across the darkening blue
we sit in quiet solemnity
watching as the horizon coaxes
the last droplets of blue from the sky


  1. Danette this was beautiful!!! I loved this!! The pictures just added to the feeling and emotion!

    I'm a happy new follower *waves* and look forward to reading more in the future!

  2. Thank you so much for the kind words. This is modified from my fictional piece 'Death and Politics at the End of the World' so it worked to put it together with this picture from the beach my character would be sitting on. It is a wonderful place to watch the sunset from.
