A sunset shot through with gold

Waits only for a moment on the edge

Some place where the earth meets the sky

Waves of coloured light reach out from its bright central fire

Casting shadows across the land

Transfixed I wait watching the scene unfold

Before it slides beneath the fields 

Lingering with only the smallest glow

To bear witness to God’s glorious picture show.
