SUNSET


I sit by my window
Looking out beyond the hills
I watch the sunset
And am happy to be me.

I watch the brilliant blue
Turn to a soft pink and grey
Some dark clouds begin to form
At the end of the day.

I see the trees change from
Dark green to burnt orange
So many colors to herald fall.

I hear the dogs bark
I can hear the birds chirping
Feeding their young
Soon it will be dusk
Time to quiet down.

I look up at the sky
It is twilight
The stars slowly fill the sky
I look up at the full moon
It is time to say good night.

Hiren 10:17 PM  

Very nicely expressed. My sister in law stays near Juhu Beach in Bombay and I make it a point to go to the beach every evening when I am there. It is heaven. Recently, I was in chennai for the blog mela where my hosts told me that at the marina beach there was no susnset but sunrise. I was so used to the concept of sunset on the beach that it never occured that a beach could be facing east as well.

Do keep writing..
