dream about the future and look up. 
There's nothing like a beautiful sunset 
to end a healthy day."

"Each golden sunrise ushers in new opportunities 
for those who retain faith in themselves, 
and keep their chins up... 
Meet the sunrise with confidence. 
Fill every golden minute 
with right thinking and worthwhile endeavor. 
Do this and there will be joy for you 
in each golden sunset."

                                                         ~ Alonzo Newton Benn ~

There is an eruption of silence
When we witness the miracle
Of a sunset
A thundering absence of anything
Except you, me and the glorious sky
Golden clouds passing us by
With our faces tilted together
Your protective arm always round my waist
The disappearance of the sun
Painting a portrait of pure divinity
Unbelievable how such a phenomenon takes place
When all is quiet
When there is no need to listen
To startling colors as the day darkens
To your sweet breath on my neck

~ Christy Pavoncello ~

hold the thought firmly,
 and do every day what should be done, 
and every sunset 
will see you that much nearer to your goal."

and the water caught fire."

"People are just as wonderful as sunsets 
if you let them be. 
When I look at a sunset, 
I don't find myself saying, 
'Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.'
I don't try to control a sunset. 
I watch with awe as it unfolds."

But every sunrise gives us one day more to HOPE."

Now dipt in western clouds his parting day."

         "Softly the evening came. 
The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician 
extended his golden wand o'er the landscape;
Twinkling vapors arose; 
and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch, 
and melted and mingled together."

                                                     ~ Wadsworth Longfellow ~

“The setting sun, 
and the music at the close, 
As the last taste of sweets, 
is sweetest last, 
Writ in remembrance 
more than long things past.”

and we will be at dockside 
bidding you a farewell 
as you set off into the sunset.”

"It is almost impossible 
to watch a sunset and not dream."

The magic within a single sunset 
The symbolism imbibed 
Of a past well completed
Transitioning  peacefully, gracefully, beautifully
Into the excitement, curiosity and allure
Of the future and the night.

and I love not the man who can look 
without emotion 
upon the sunset of life, 
when the dusk of evening 
begins to gather over the watery eye, 
and the shadows of twilight 
grow broader and deeper upon the understanding.”

                                                              ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~

And coming events cast their shadows before.”

We are never frightened at a sunset."

or the beauty of the moon, 
my soul expands 
in the worship of the creator.”

and looking forward for the next Sunrise."

                        SUNSET RAINBOW                         
The rainbow curves into
the dying rays of the sun
near the close of the day.
The gold everyone seeks
was spread across the sky.
Near the end of the sunset rainbow
it was a glimpse of future days
when we will follow the fading sun
to that paradise that lays beyond
as we become particles
that will never fade in time,
the essence of every new day,
even as our mortal coil fades away.

~ David Harris ~
