Setting Sun– Lake Shoreline
I am the sun setting in the evening’s sky
tinting clouds pink with my good-bye.
I wait the birds who soon will dance the sky,
diving and rising as they wave bye-bye.
There are no answers here–
just simple beauty to enjoy
as all the creatures celebrate a passing day
with not a thought of asking why.
My wife and I walk by the quiet lake
enjoy the sun, the birds,
and every single breath we take.
