As I was re-reading some of my old poems, I stumbled upon one that was based on a photograph. I enjoyed the poem so much, that I thought I’d write today’s poem based on a different photograph. Disclaimer, it was much harder than I thought.
The sunset caught my eyes at first
Its beauty a shining light on all who see
The clouds quickly evict the space
Allowing the sun to extend its rays
The hills stood tall, stopping the sun in its track
The lake, nature’s very own mirror
Reflecting the magnificence of all that is above
And soon my gaze moved to her
Dressed in denim and trainers
Her faced botoxed with the look of epiphany
She perched herself on the glass decking
With a glass full of wine in hand
Her attempt at causality overwhelmed with forced elegance
I took a deep breath to process it all
The beauty that we experience
Some made by man
And some made by God.
Thank you for reading.
