Setting Sun

 

Just above the ocean,

there overhangs a tree

and as the sun is setting

it is the place for me.

 

I fixed it up and sorted it,

a swing where I can sit

and watch the sky become

in such deep yellow lit.

 

I can stay there watching,

the multi-colored hues,

thinking many thoughts that

always make their way to you.

 

The yellow slowly fades away,

the sun bows to the moon,

telling all the world that

the night will be here soon.

 

I’ll scramble down the branches,

leave aside my swing,

but it won’t bring me sadness

because here is the thing;

 

those dreams of mine will still be yours,

you’ll stay inside my mind,

the silver moon as magic

as the sunset I do find.

Nice imagery Mama Hullabaloo, I live near the east coast and have seldom seen the sun set into the sea. But I like sunrises! Usianguke

Yeah, it's strange, the different viewpoints, isn't it. I grew up in the South-East of England and now live in the South-West of Ireland. Thanks for reading, Moa.
