Gently as the sun sets
Gently as the sun sets

gently as the sun sets
nature takes on a life
gilt and glowing
for a moment
before
fading

    Sometimes it takes the absence of something precious for us to really appreciate it…•~♡

    I like your musings Steve. You pursue your passions and dreams. Love that. I can relate about the self-marketing thing. Keeping a low-profile can feel safe and comfortable but in the end what’s more agonizing than dying with your story still within you, right? You already seem to have a big fan club, so you’re doing great!
    Forgive me for not subscribing (bad follower as well). It’s really nothing personal cause I don’t subscribe to any blog. Reason is I get easily overwhelmed by my e-mail inbox and prefer to just bookmark and visit blogs weekly. Appreciate genuine connections 🙂

    Perfectly said – I envisioned it splendidly…lovely poem. It is wonderful how nature is crowned in gold so beautifully by the sun for one brief moment…but oh, that moment!

    Blessings for wonderful inspirations,
    Marianne

        I hope that you get better. I’m sorry I didn’t you comment response. I don’t understand where they go on WP but I missed this one! I am the same always actually sometimes a little stressed but mostly I’m that same! Happy and looking forward to the next fun adventure life brings my way! Be blessed and heal well! 😀

      Thank you for saying so and for stopping by. It’s perhaps a good thing I haven’t posted my terribly angsty teen poetry!

    I love it when a poem and a photograph go so well together. I feel a sadness that is not dark. Just a sweet sadness at the passing of the light. Knowing, if it did not pass, we would get used to it, and not appreciate it!!!

      Thank you so much Carol for your kind words and visit here 🙂 Isn’t it funny how the absence of a thing can make us feel it more keenly?
