Nothing New Under the Sunset


We just had another glorious sunset.

Is that too superlative or maybe too cliché?

Okay, it was totally awesome, dude–mmm

. . . or maybe pretty,           in an exclamation point kind of way.

That’s it!

I need to speak in punctuation marks       colon

fresh, innovative, disarming kinds of descriptors!

Or maybe not–insert sigh.

It was layered, peachy, pink chiffon

with crystalline threads of lavender and sky blue–wind breathed.

. . . Sky blue in the sky doesn’t really fit.

Robin’s egg blue!

Okay, I give up.

It was a beautiful, inspiring display of earth rotation!

(Notice how I didn’t say sunset.  Is that a cliché yet?)

Looking west

Looking south

    Not quite sure, as astrophysics is a little above the pay grade, but maybe what we call sunset is actually an earthfall, as opposed to sunup is actually and earthrise. Somebody got banished from his own country for proposing that the sun does not revolve around the earth, didn’t he? Tee!Hee!…

I would love to hear from you!
