Life Goes On

#Greenflash
       Life Goes On
 
Sun
      sets
fleeting emerald line
f l a s h e s  like a thin blade grass
 
last light ray
dances to a bed of buganvilias
to twilight to moonlight
 
dawn
 
and now the first ray of
Sunrise
 
                  . . .
NDR2.27.2017

Sunsets into sunrises, earth, sun, our galaxy spinning, beaming with light/life
seen in #140 - character Tweet. Poem written vacationing here in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico watching the sun set and saw a short green flash, inspired by friends Catherine who asked to tweet the event and the day so far and thinking-cap-on Jerald anxious to see the #140.

Sounds like a great place. May I come for dinner? That's O.K. I don't eat very much. I can just sit and look at the "bougainvillea."

Wouldn't it be nice if we, this little circle of friends, can get together and have a nice breakfast or dinner together, maybe a buffet. Maybe you can join us next year, :-))

@Francis: Brod, you mean sunset. Btw, that's a pelican I believe though the long and pouched beak is not prominent in this shot.

You sure have a way with words. Great poem. I'll have to look up "buganvilias."

Thank you Robert, appreciate it. "Buganvilias" is the name of the Sheraton Hotel Resort where we stayed in Puerto Vallarta. A thorny vine with clusters of red to crimson to yellow flowers, no fragrance, just beautiful - the name "bougainvillea" is spelled in several ways depending on where it grows which is world wide. The deck off the living room where we stayed has a flower bed of bougainvilleas
right off the railing that extends from end to end of the building. All floors of the building have this feature.
Our unit is oriented west, lucky we are! You can see how the sun's rays find their way "dancing" through the buganvilias.
