Sunset on a cliff top V2


I stand on the cliff top above the bay

in reverent pose to await the start

of nature’s ceremony to close the day

with all the glorious splendour of his Art.

Slowly the eager moon appears with night,

shade into shadow challenging the eyes

as a solemn stillness falls with the dying light

and once again the ancient Sun God dies.

Yet even at this mournful twilight time

his still warm fingers play along my arm

promising, come dawn he’ll return and climb

anew and there dispense his healing balm.

I am left with a feeling of such awe

that I will until my end of days keep

a memory of  the beauty I just saw

  as the world began to sleep
