how does one describe a sunset,
and craft into words the palette of colors,
the interplay of the clouds, the sea,
the distant hills, the scent of flowers?
how the sun rays reflect on puffs of clouds
and in tiny waves in the bluish ocean,
while a solitary bird casts a shadow
on the orange orb descending in the horizon?
how can one verbalize the sound of waves,
breaking, crashing on giant rocks,
one after another, seemingly never ending;
lulling one to sleep like soporific clocks?
how does one write about the serenity,
the inner peace one feels watching the sunset;
to witness the climax of a beautiful day,
to watch the grandeur one cannot forget?
and how does one express gratitude
to our Maker for this gift so priceless,
that despite our many shortcomings
He has deigned our unworthy souls to bless!!!

This is the one! Love ending with a question. Makes me not want to take for granted any beautiful moment in nature God has given us...So I noticed three poems having to do with sunsets, sunrises, or both. I think I read all three. Love all three! My favorite is the romantic sonnet. Again, nicely written.

Beautiful in every way. Who else can describe the sunset this way. But giving back the glory to God is the best thing we can say.

How do I describe your poem that touched my heart? How can I write about the way it made me feel? How can I give my feelings to someone else? How can he feel what I feel? Mother Nature is our beautiful home. Real nice poem
