Sunset Thinking

Poem By Marilyn Lott

Do you ever watch the sunset
And just sit and think about things
Just you and the sky and darkness
Giving your thoughts some wings

Perhaps you've got some troubles
And don't know what to do
Or you just plain need to get away
To spend a little time with you

Sunset beauty makes you feel as though
Your life has meaning after all
To see a sight so extraordinary
Makes you feel capable, strong and tall

It's funny how flashes of color
Like a sunset or sunrise can inspire
It can calm your inner self a bit
It's a scene you can never tire

The serenity gives you a chance
To put things in perspective
Life can be overwhelming at times
And a sunset can be reflective

So when the sky lights up next time
Let your gaze do some drinking
Soak up all the amazing sights
And do some sunset thinking!

Comments about Sunset Thinking

Yes I’m ready
Yes, actually, I have! Do it almost every day... Lovely poem, Marilyn.
This poem is amazing and it speaks the truth sunsets do calm your inner-self, but I rarely get any time to just sit down and relax
Ahhh! Natures beautiful spectacle.
Ahhh! Sunsets. Natures beautiful spectacle.

For everything is new

Or like a flower sipping morning dew

A Bologna Sandwich?

I love a hamburger that is cooked just right
Sliced tomato, onion and a pickle too

So many choices that we can pursue
