Eventide

I stand on the balcony, watching the outline of the landscape slowly slip away. All that remains is immense vastness above. Tranquility descends and wraps around me as I savor this moment in time on the other side of the world.

Softening sunlight melds with the clouds creating layers, alternating light and dark on the sky canvas. The lingering glow dissolves on the horizon leaving a hillside silhouette as we travel away from the light.

Soon it will be time to rest and rejuvenate for the adventures tomorrow will bring.

I miss sunsets from our traveling days.

  1. This is the most gorgeous imagery I’ve read today. It’s the most gorgeous imagery I’ve read this month actually. Makes me wish I actually sat and watched the sunset more often. It’s just there and I let it pass, while I get dinner together. I will sit and watch it this week. You’ve inspired me.

    “The lingering glow dissolves on the horizon leaving a hillside silhouette as we travel away from the light.” Also line struck me. Reminded me of the mountains in Jamaica.

  2. love love Tranquility descends and wraps around me as I savor this moment in time on the other side of the world. Your title is beautiful… I miss sunsets, which we never see in our new/old house because we face east… now sunrise… lots of those I catch. XO
