Photographic Poem to Sunset


So begins the ending of the first day of the year.

sunset continues-7633

The sun continues its long slide into the sea.


At the point, we wait for dark.


The setting sun spreads its fiery fantasy on the end of day.


A young photographer gives homage to the sky and sea.


Sun lights a trail to the origin of night.


Sun slips into the sea.


A boat rides the ocean past the sun.


To announce the end of day, a jet paints a last trail through the darkening sky.


To Day One, Good Night.
