Cape Cod Sunset

July 2013 074

There are some things in nature my mere mortal mind cannot describe in words.
Along with a wonderful dinner, our friends included as our dessert, a trip to Skaket Beach to watch the sunset. I took many pictures in the hope that my camera could catch what my words cannot.
Not a poet. Not a literary writer. Here’s my attempt:
The bright yellow flare of the white hot sun causes the sky to blush and pours liquid gold onto the ripples of the silky gray water.
I know many of you can do better. Will you give it a try? Can you put the beauty of a sunset in words? Send me a comment.
I’m going to publish my blog at the same time as the sun sets in Orleans this evening, 7:24 p.m. Hope you might see your own tonight.

  1. I couldn’t have said it better.
    I can tell you of the magical arched ribbon of color that filled our sky when the sun shone on a gentle rainfall in the late afternoon.

  2. The photo is amazing. I love your description. Thanks for the invite, here’s my stab at it.

    Golden aura
    Sate the sea
    With nectar
    Of tranquility.

  3. Poetic magic. Lovely. Thank you!!

    I couldn’t have said it better. There is nothing that equals the peace and tranquility of a beautiful sunset. Enjoy it while you can.

  5. A saffron star spices Skaket’s tranquil waters…
