Awaiting Sunset

Awaiting sunset, one by one the colors fill the sky
hues of fuchsia and orange etched in the clouds
paint a picture more beautiful than life itself
as the whitecaps lap onto the shore with fury
anticipation begins to grow awaiting sunset
and all of the splendor that it will bring
across the horizon the sun begins it descent
as night begins to fall marking days end
as the sunset becomes the sunrise
above and beyond the distant horizon
