Evening Solitude

 Dusk descends upon the snowy winter plains
 The sun slowly sinks into the western sky
 The landscape has a magical winter-land glow
 White in contrast to the dusty blue hue
 Deer stand grazing on the fields of straw
 Once golden wheat stood tall in summers heat
 Now short and covered with white winter dust
 Looking heaven ward the sky is aglow
 As if someone took a paint brush to a canvas
 Red, oranges, purple, blue and golden amber
 So colorful that it looks like a piece of art
 As the sun finally sunk behind earth's orb
 I sat in wonder watching nature at it's best.

    Phiylis; with your words you have painted a beautiful picture. One just has to close our eyes and see it. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    Yes it's so beautiful no ones seems to do it justice, artists like Turner come close to the majesty of god's sky, hope you're well and happy. Light & Love
