Indian Summer Setting Sun

 

There the sun is~

 A dollop~

 Of white-ish yellow.

 

Slivering behind~

 A dark charcoal grey~

 Thick cloud.

 

Alone it begins to hide~

 With other clouds cascading~

 Assembling~

 Scattering~

 Through the surrounding sky.

 

Mountain tops~

 Frame the bottom scene~

 With leaf colors~

 A-waiting to change.

 

Occasional maples~

 And hemlock trees~

 Already ablaze~

 Having accepted their fate.

 

Goldenrod still perks~

 With ocher color~

 Standing firm~

 Amongst sumacs drooping stance.

 

A stretch of water~

 Is firm and calm like glass flat~

As the last of the sun~

 Lights its home~

Broken like a jig saw puzzle~

 As green and brown water~

 Are denied~

 Now the suns grasp.

 

Stone wedges align~

 To the shore~

 With variants of grays~

 While continuing~

 To grassy woods~

 It slices silently~

 To different hues~

 Of black cold hard folds.

 

The sun~

 Follows two silhouettes walking~

 Glowing as if golden halos~

 Surround their beings.

 

As if GOD has BLESSED them~

 With renewed peace~

 Towards the end~

 Of this beautiful graced day.

 

The sun gives one last blasting belt~

 Of its round fire ball a flame!

The sun’s rays spreading~

 Touching the earth~

 With its starry beams~

 Before it hides to rest~

 On this Indian summer day.
