Sunset - Poem by Philip Vincent Sanders

Sunset is a time for reflection …. mellow thoughts
Working out the day …. and how its run its course
Letting all the worries of your life unfold
Speaking in your mind the stories yet untold
Watching the reflections of that ball of fire
As it sets so quickly … ready to retire
Just as in our lives we reach our own twilight
Thinking of the things we’ve done … were we wrong or right?
No recriminations … no retrospective yearning
Just a time to meditate … the last process of yearning
A time to understand … what we did and why
A time to pass to others … the lessons of our time

    good rhymes and wonderful message to impart. Yeah ur right, all of us have ups and downs, a normal sunset and surise of our lives...good use of metaphors here. And by the way, u write like a painter vividly drawing his lines on the canvas, meticulous on every detail to paint, and that's what u are. U go poet... (Report) Reply
