Over The Ocean - Poem by Char Pattrick

Every night
The horizon lights up
Swirls of pink and orange
Fading to blue and purple

Few bother to look anymore
At a blessing
So few and so far

That only comes once a day

Each sunset is different
No two exactly alike
Difference flows throughout
While it is the only similarity

Over the ocean
Or through the sky scrapers
Out on the prairie
Or in an apartment

You can still see a piece
A piece of something
Something never to return
A sunset

For the colours are shimmering
For a moment they stay
Only to disappear into change
Just as beautiful as the last

This is why
No matter where you go
One thing remains the same,
A difference in sunsets

Is not a difference in heart

    I enjoyed this one about sunsets. I love sunsets myself & have written about them in my poems 'A Purple Phase' & 'Escape'. Please take some time to read them.
