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.
