it comes suddenly and stays only for a little while;

that golden silver magic light of the sun sinking behind rooftops there

that makes me look up and sigh as it blazes in through an open window or door

turning the whole room burnished gold;

and I wonder and smile and breathe in and go outside

to bathe in it

wanting it to last a long while;

I cannot get enough of it

for it always comes like this,

this stealthy, sudden way;

and I grasp it close to me, beautiful—as it slowly dies,

like life.

Like life!
And it seems to go so quickly as it sets!

You write about nature and life's cold realities. I have much the same outlook in my work as you do in yours. Well done.

What a great analogy! There is nothing I love more than watching a sunset. I wish that I could capture the beauty in each one of them...but a camera just doesn't do them justice.

Such a beautiful piece. Could see you outside with your arms stretched out taking in the rays.....

Gloria this sure is an eye opener and a heart warmer for how can one not look at the glow of a rising or falling sun and not be impressed with the magic of life.

Reviewed by Regis Auffray
I do appreciate the metaphorical undertones in your verses, Gloria. There is much to ponder upon. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and peace to you,

Beautifully descriptive. You have captured the scene and the feeling it gives you wonderfully.

Enrichment lies in these words. The sun dies every day only return to start a new day for each of us. We interpret what we see and feel as it applies to each of us.
