Blessed II

It’s a quarter to six
and the sun’s sinking low
But it’s so lovely here
that I don’t want to go
So I’ll sit here a while
as the shadows grow long
to watch the sun set
to the ebbing tide’s song

And as temperatures drop
and the day disappears
I’ll watch the gold grow
with the salt from my tears
And I’ll bid it farewell
as it fades to the west
from my vantage point here
on the beach where I’m blessed

Aspects of Gold III

Part 3 of 3

Of the sunsets I’ve seen
these aspects of gold
are treasures to cherish
and assets to hold
For each is a promise
to capture and seize
from the sun in the sky
like a kiss on the breeze

Aspects of Gold II

Part 2 of 3

On the footbridge returning
from a day on the beach
there’s a place where I stand
that’s within easy reach
to envelop myself
in the colours I see
and gaze out in wonder
as it falls around me

For here there are moments
to capture and hold
as each sunset settles
to aspects of gold

Aspects of Gold I

Part 1 of 3

Golden the sunshine
Drips from the sky
To the water below
As sunsets come by
And the river just glows
To this golden encore
As I’m caught in the moment
With wonder and awe

Bliss III

Watching as the sun goes down
on beach huts in a row
Catching the last rays
as in Western skies quite slow
it settles on another day
and evening time comes in
with golden glow to capture
the shadows lengthening

The breeze is gentle, fragrant
The sea, a flattened calm
Relaxing to the watching eye
just like a soothing balm
And my camera is ready
as I do not want to miss
this spectacle of nature
which to me is perfect bliss

Eyebrow of the sun

15 of 16 in the Jemverse ‘Venetian Vistas’ series


The expression of the sun
as it set on our last day
across the sea out to the West
was a marvellous display
The gold across the ocean
on the water spoke to me
as I heard the voice of sunshine
and the echo of the sea

It was like it cocked an eyebrow
tinged with gold as if to say
a ‘Bon Voyage’ and fond farewell
to speed us on our way
So smiling we responded
raised a hat and gave a wave
capturing this moment
as a memory to save

Of Venetian Diamonds

11 of 16 in the Jemverse ‘Venetian Vistas’ series

Sailing east from a sunset
as rich as could be
We continued our cruise
here in North Italy

Venice passed golden
and we waved a goodbye
as a moment we shared
with a tear in the eye

As this was with no doubt a diamond day
spent here in Venice in every way
