Red Horizon
Now that sunset has begun,
hues make ordinary grand,
I must ponder at each one,
contemplating as I stand-
red horizon's setting sun,
rising for the distant land.

I must ponder at each one,
contemplating, as I stand,
light diminished 'til there's none,
day forgotten out of hand,
red horizon's setting sun,
rising for the distant land.

Light diminished 'til there's none,
day forgotten out of hand,
what I've lost, some others won,
much as tides return the sand,
red horizon's setting sun,
rising for the distant land.

What I've lost, some others won,
much as tides return the sand,
yin and yang, the world has spun,
darkness there will now remand,
red horizon's setting sun,
rising for the distant land.

Nice ode to the horizon. I love the nature theme for poems like this embellish what is already beautiful. You rocked this one out!
