sun setting in a fiery sky
across where the eagle fly
as white clouds no longer high

…….sunset shall await
………..rising suns destined fate

when the day had come and done
silently the ripples and waves have gone
as horizon kept a distance with the glooming sun

………sunset shall sleep
………….rising sun slumbered deep

slowly the sky meets the sea without an end
far beyond where nothing ever transcend
and everything in darkness shall blend

……….sunset stays a haven
…………..rising sun comes to awaken

let the sun, set as it will always rise
waves be rushing yet not suffice
the sky brightly stays and lies

    A poem that is both descriptive and philosophic , it paints a beautiful picture and signals time cycles as well as cycles of Destiny and emotions

    Loved the poem Sunrise Sunset, and the painting that accompanies it. The stark imagery is appealing, and the philosophical touch enhances the description of nature.
