Kissed by the Sunset

I don't want to stand with the setting sun, not being able to look myself straight in the eye.

I don't want to hate myself at the end of the day for things I've done or not done.

I don't want the setting sun to find my closet shelf full of unhealed secrets about myself.

I want the setting sun to find me with my head held high so that I may be kissed by the sunset.

I can never hide myself from me.

I can never fool myself, because I know what others may never know.

I am my own shadow, that wake me each morning, stands with me all day, and on until the evening.

Like sparkling water kissed by the sunset, I want the end of the day to find my reflection transparent and clear and beautiful.

Caressing Kiss of Love

Like the setting sun, glowing bright red, as it caresses velvety pink cotton candy clouds or as the deep magenta magic adds color to the depths of the ocean and the waves as they lap the sand.

I see the clouds part and the sunset light beams through.

I hear the river, as it flows gently by.

The sky becomes like a gilded ruby, as the red-orange sun slowly recedes.

The sky whispers to the approaching night, "Hold me in your caressing kiss of love," looking ahead to a starry night.

I am overwhelmed by the many sensations that the setting sun evokes in me.

That Sunset Was Just For You!

As the sun fades into the distant sky, I gaze up at the stars.

They wink at me, as if to say, "That sunset was just for you."

The shooting star that follows is filled with love, echoed by the slow rise of the full moon into the night sky.
