“Sunset” by Joan Y. Edwards
The Sun rises to work for us every day.
Like you and me, it gets tired and sets in the evening.
Sometimes in the evening you and I plop into our chairs from fatigue.
Does the sun just plop into its chair to rest until morning?
My daughters, Lorrie and Mollie, and I enjoy watching the sun rise and set. On October 1, 2023, when I was on a cruise ship close to Livorno, Italy I experienced a beautiful sunset like no other I had seen before. About 7:01 p.m. after we left the port of Livorno, Italy I joined Mollie watching the sun set.
Usually, I see the sun gradually go down. It did that this time, too. But this time instead of steadily moving little by little towards the hole in the sky where it meets the ocean, it looked like it dropped right into a little parking place for it in on the top of the ocean. Perhaps there’s an easy chair for the sun to plop into every day wherever it is. I am glad I got to witness it happening in Italy.
I took the photos and painted the picture, too. I hope you enjoy them.
Please leave a comment. If you have photos of one of your favorite sunsets, please share them with me. I will post at least 3 of them here for all to enjoy.
(Before Covid, I told my daughters that I would like to go to SanRemo, Italy and Rome, Italy to do research to add details to a novel I wrote called Immigrant Heart and one I am writing about going back in time to save Julius Caesar from being assassinated. So they helped me plan this cruise to the Western Mediterranean from September 23-October 2, 2023 to do my research and to have a wonderful time adventuring with them. We decided that doing a cruise and leaving luggage on board the ship while we toured different areas was a great way to explore Spain, France, and Italy in the Western Mediterranean Sea. And it was!)
