Sunsets Reflect Us

Distance belongs to clouds
How they drift, lost
a picture of anguish
leaving empty spaces
to rush, pink and flushed
into each new dawn.

Impatiently they wait
for their sunset fires to burn
then they darken -
dying with not 
a flutter of regret.

    I can see how one might be tempted to extenuated eloquence over many sunsets, but you cap that with surprise understatement that confirms you maturity as a poet. And by god it works!

    Suz, glad you enjoyed my "Friends of the Night" poem. Your "Sunset" above has a similar 'after dark' feel. I especially like the words "then they darken- dying with not a flutter of regret". ~Jim MeanderthalMan

    Hi SUZ, Nice poem with strong imagery. "for their sunset fires to burn" A very captivating line illustrated here.

    There are a lot of underlying messages here. "Our choices make us", as they say. This is a tremendous example of that. Nicely done.
