The offing of night’s twilight over sea
Oversaw and offered hope
Of a sweeter day tomorrow.
As today’s sun’s rays melted
Into the mystic, glassy waters
Carrying with them the day’s perplexities of sorrow.
Handcrafted poetry by John Hines, 01/10/2016
I have a “new year’s resolution” (https://coachhinesblogs.com/2015/12/31/new-years-resolutions-in-5-words) to slow down for 50 sunsets in 2016. I’ve done it once thus far. The feelings felt in a magnificent, shared sunset over the Gulf of Mexico in the last week of 2015 inspired this poem.
