Sunset #haiku



winning strip of red

splits murk, raining golden shafts;

elegant goodnight

  1. Sadly, I don’t see sunsets where I live. But when I do see a good one it sometimes seems as if there is a gigantic lake in the sky with clouds for a shoreline. It’s like a vision of another planet.

    1. That’s how I feel about it sometimes. I used to live beside an estuary, and it sometimes looked as if the sunset was a continuation of the sea, containing islands partly covered with mountains and trees. I’d watch the changing picture until it disappeared.
