A poem for you


Sunset

The sunset's like a fire in the sky-
Orange, gold, and amber-hued,
The day has come and gone
And rests brightly in the blue.
The sun-a reflecting light
On thoughts as the day closes.
Was today well-spent?
For soon the sun reposes...
The glow of day is fading
And soon will be past.
Have we made a memory
That will keep and last?
Embers of light glow softly,
Soon the sun will rest.
Did we add our light to the world?
Can we say, "I did my best?"
The glow of daylight closes,
soon stars will touch the skies.
The glory of God in the Heavens-
We'll have a new sunrise

Starrlette L. Howard

Look up to the skies and behold; regard the Heavens high above you. Job 35:5

What a beautiful picture...makes me wish I could be sitting at the end of that dock, admiring the sunset!! Love the poem too...between the sunrise and the sunset, we certainly have a wonderful start and end to our days.

Oops, that last comment was really me, not Priscilla. She was signed on to her google account at my house and I never noticed.

You are welcome for the comment and will have to meet Priscilla another time. Sorry... :)

Beautiful picture and poem. I spent a lovely day with my new daughter. She seems to be going through a growth spurt so we spent the majority of the day snuggled in bed eating. It was lovely. =) Hope you had a wonderful day!

Love sunsets! Very thoughtful poem, as well. It is important to make the most of each day and to add our light so that it will reflect back to us, as memories are so important! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! :)
