One Last Sunset Kiss

We’ve been sunset chasers ever since we were wed

Sprinting in our car to capture that perfect moment
 
As the earth and sky kissed each other goodnight


My eyelids close as I meditate on swirls of albacore prisms

Engulfing the last remnants of the sun’s waning light

You were my prince and I  your beloved bride


Here we are-- a stranger, me, and you in a majestic hot air balloon ride

Soon there will only be two …as I honor your last wishes 

Scattering your ashes against marmalade and burgundy hues


Let me savor this moment,... our last sunset together 

Before our time on this earth as husband and wife is through



Written for Francine Robert’s Contest-Top 5 Sunsets

    Congrats on your win Gwen! This is such a beautiful and touching write. I just told my husband to do this with my ashes at sunset over a body of water. I could finally face my fear of heights and drowning. I think I'm onto something here, thanks to your poem! LOL...Love and Blessings, Rhonda

    Glad Jag found out who the ashes belonged to; was worried it was all real and I was prepared to offer condolences but you fooled me! Was in a tizzy about the name change too but reading below got me straightened out. Sunsets were never so beautiful keep improving nature Gwen. Love it all. Lizzie
