Sunsets of Love

My favorite time of day Is sunset As the sun begins to set, I pour a glass of wine for my wife Or sometimes rum or whiskey And sit down to dinner. Drinking our drink While watching the sunset, Over the western sea. Sometimes, we take a walk At sunset and watch the sun Sink beneath the west sea Off of Yeoungjong Island Near the Incheon airport town. We live on an island So the sea is all around us, The park nearby Has splendid sea views. And the mountain top Is a great place To catch the sunset Over the nearby sea. My favorite sunset story Though comes from Barbados, In the Caribbean sea. At the right time, Of the year, Usually in winter, At sunset, When the weather cooperates With a few clouds in the sky As the sun sets, You might be lucky You might experience the green flash as the entire sky turns bright green, for a flash of a second, then settles down into evening calm. I experienced it four times Four times in three years Always, a special occasion. the locals always claim if you look for the green flash it will not flash but when you are ready it will show its magic and you will be lucky the next day. And we celebrated With a glass of Mt Guy rum A perfect way To end a perfect sunset. But in the end, As long as I have my wife By my side, The sunset will always Be a magical ending For another day. In our earthy paradise, Spent with the love Of my life by my side.
