The long sunset

A perfect end to perfect day
sitting on the beach
Watching the long sunset
with a beer in easy reach
It’s hot here in the sunshine
with shadows lengthening
Anticipation’s growing
of what the end will bring

There’ll be golds and reds and purples
Pinks and yellows in between
for this spectacle of nature
and the best that I have seen
The sea’s a perfect millpond
So as the evening draws a bead
I’ll sit and watch whilst waiting
for it to take the lead

Some beach huts are still open
Firesmoke drifting on the breeze
so I’m content to stay here
with the sun warm on my knees
It’s not long for the waiting
The curtain call is due
When evening of another day
with sunset will ensue
