Sunset Over Victoria Harbor In Hong Kong



And the sun retreats

high aglow orange canvas

where I’ve seen this same glow

half a world away

on a different horizon.


And the daylight verbiage

quelled by deafening quiet

whispers secrets

to passerby clouds

never remembered.


And the harbour bids

“farewell Sun Goddess”

drowning in darkness

gently awaiting

a symphony of lights.


Until we meet again…

That's a stunning photograph. Did you take it yourself? A sweet passage, too.

Sitehopped, Redditted and Stumbled. :)
