In The Warmth Of A Sunset

I wait in passion
For the moment of beauty
For the sunset to paint an art
On the clouds, on the ocean
In the sky, in my heart

I watch with emotion
As the moment comes to pass
Colors splash across the sky
Hues of orange and glowing violet
A beauty hard to portray

I gaze in awe
As the orb kisses the ocean
The horizon set ablaze
Enfolding me into the warmth
In symphony of blue and red

I stand still, mesmerized
As the sunset disappears
To another place, another town
To appear as pretty sunrise
For an admirer who waits

(Written by Zunnur, describing a sunset in Tengah Beach, Langkawi)

I lovely heart felt poem connecting you to nature. I love the line "In symphony of blue and red". I could see the music with my eyes when reading this line. Thank you for your inspiration. :)

What an absolutely BEAUTIFUL poem!

You write with such clear visuals and emotion.

"As the sunset disappears
To another place, another town
To appear as pretty sunrise
For an admirer who waits"

I'm such a lover of sunset, so I really enjoyed this. Sunsets for me are my favorite time of the day. I find them deeply spiritual.

Have a great week!

I loved the way the poem rhymed in the first and second paragraph. Poem has a fresh feel to it and the accompanying photo is a perfect.

Stunning poetry, I must say.:)

This is a lovely poem. I think the last time that I have written a poem was in grade school (since it's a requirement). You have a way with words.

Yo do have a way with words, more so - a way with interpretation.

Do you spend a long time to pen your poems or they just rush to be written on the page?

Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for your kind and inspiring comments, I really appreciate each and everyone of you.

Dear Nino,

Initially the words just poured out of my heart, but after that it took me some time to edit and condense the poem.
Thank you very much for your kind words.
