A ray of sun captured

I captured the sunset
at the beach hut today
Late in the evening
with a golden display

Reflective and gorgeous
the warmth of the sun
captured right here
as the day is all done

Orange Two

Seven colours, seven days
Orange follows suit
The second in the rainbow
it really is a beaut

It’s right there in a sunset
at the end of a long day
A testament to wonder
in every single way

Part 2 of 7 – ‘The Rainbow Series’

Found by the sun

Went for a walk in the park and the sun
found me with a smile
exuded in a wide sunbeam
stayed with me for a while

Watched it as it settled at
the end of a long day
The sunbeams caught me squinting
and I waved at them as they
settled in the slumber that the
westward evening sky
had laid for it in waiting
as I wandered slowly by

Promise in store

The daffodils are past their prime
but here at Horsted Keynes
The sunset comes at eight o’clock
and we all know what that means

It heralds Springtime’s fading
Summer’s waiting at the door
And warmer days are in the wings
with promise there in store

Evening Gold

Silhouetted here in contrast
against an azure sky
Like giant insects waiting
cranes in silent protest lie
And glorious behind them
behind the Western hills
The sun sets o’er the city
and everything is still
This tranquil ending of a day
when all is painted gold
exudes a warmth, a calming
as the evening takes a hold

Room with a view

fullsizeoutput_1a5c

So, the view from my room
overlooking the Tyne
is spectacular as ever
in the evening sunshine

Here in Newcastle
with the river in flow
I can think of worse places
to stay, don’t you know!

So I’ll sit here a while
at the end of my day
and think of some words
this scene to portray

Windmill

imgp1389

Sails though empty caught the light
of golden evening sun
as the windmill here at Kingston
was admired by everyone

We’d caught a glimpse on the descent
from the high Drover’s trail
but here up close and personal
its beauty was unveiled

A testament to ages past
the miller lays at rest
with his home, the Kingston windmill
restored to look its best
