ripple away

as the sun starts to set

earthly journey almost complete


color bursts of life's memories

lessons captured or lost

most precious gift...

more time

    A meaningful poem. It is amazing how sitting by water, and watching a sunset makes us all so mindful. Time is indeed a gift.

    This is a beautiful poem. Sunsets are beautiful, and I wished they lasted longer. The sunsets of our lives aren't always beautiful, though they can be.
