The Gift

Eluminating

Precious gift to end the day

Sublime enchantment

The Solar Queen

Reflects in cold glass

Blazing trail from east to west

A tangerine dream

Beyond the Horizon

Lost in horizon

Darkness moves to fill the space

Exploding colors

Nature's Magic


Sun sets end of day

God paints his palette with care

Divine alchemy

Autumn Light Fading

Light fragments through clouds

Leaves Cascading all around

Halcyon days gone

Do you take time to gaze at a beautiful sunset

      I love watching sunsets. It is something so beautiful and relaxing. Your haikus are beautiful and the photos are absolutely gorgeous. The two together are absolute art. I have never seen such a fusion of words and photography that is perfect as this. Well done!

      Hi Debbie, it's so lovely to see you, glad you enjoyed the haiku, sunsets are indeed very special. As for the UTI if you think you might have it, then please contact your doctor. UTI can become serious when ignored, At least take a look at the hub, if you think you have some of the symptoms go see the doctor. Thank you for stopping by, it's always a pleasure, take care of yourself and my best to you.

      Hi Lurana, thank you for checking this out, I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I just happened on a site with the images, they took my breath away and the haiku practically wrote themselves. Thank you again for the lovely comment.

      This is gorgeous! The photos are absolutely breathtaking and your haiku verses beautifully express the vivid beauty of sunset. My favorite phrases are "Lost in horizon", "Blazing her trail East to West" and "Divine alchemy".

      Hi Martin, I considered moving away from the 5 7 5 format but for me, it is ideal, I feel a little less constrained. But one day I'll give it a go. :)

      My best to you as always.
