Sun is Setting

Serene sunset on the mystic shore

Before the velvet darkness descends

Sends my  soul to a sacred, safe place

Space to breathe with the flowing sea

Be with the sacred of the splendid creation

Frustration that gripped me falls away

May all experience this beatific scene

Serene sunset on the mystic shore

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Circular poem are so difficult to get right, and you did really well. I especially like it when the rhymes are not perfect but slanted… I also like that the last line is different from the first one. The interesting thing about line repetitions is that if you manage well the meaning will shift slightly after having read the poem… (I see a poetic challenge coming up).

  2. Somehow when we witness sunrise or set, we plug into the great wheel of experience, & we feel that whatever our situation, we can understand where/how we fit in. I prefer rebirth, sunrise to set, for me there is always a tinge of melancholy as the darkness descends.

    One can’t help but feel the serenity of being after witnessing a sunset. It is such a fulfilment that helps discard all the frustrations and worries there and then. Very true Carol!
