A Touch Of Sunset

Rating: 5.0
There is a tide mysterious as the sea,
Dividing light and darkness endlessly,
West of the moment's own necessity.

A touch of sunset on a distant hill
Gives vividness a little music still.
It plays our song, my friend, against all will.

Wind plucks the lonely harp strings of the air.
Loss of the landscape is beyond compare.
Our solace is the humanness we share.

‘Wind plucks the lonely harp strings of the air.’ Amazing imagery…best amongst all to me…a 'Mistress'- Stroke…to contemplate on and on… 10/10 Ms. Nivedita UK

Yes Sandra, it is the 'humaneness' we all share makes us one global community! I am very distressed at the unprovoked attacks on Indian students in Australia! The media is covering it for the last two days! 10+ -Raj Nandy

Dear Sandra-If you had never written another poem, this one would make you great for all ages to come. But all of your poems are perfect and beautiful. Thank you for this beautiful poem and thank you for upholding the tradition of art. Lol Kate

Line 7 allows me to 'feel the flame of distant poet works' and perhaps it is Sandburg who authored a piece called 'Silence' which is an old memory that this wonderful piece of poetry evokes. Blessings as always, Bill Grace

I find myself wondering what you would have done with a canvas and a brush. Right now, my mind is a canvas and your words, the brush strokes. It is better not to look for meaning where beauty is predominant. 'A thing of beauty is joy forever' John Keats Take care
