Enchanting Sunset

A walk by the shore on a blazing summer day,
So hot that you can cook an egg on the street.
The soft silky sand tickles your toes
While you complain that it is hot as fire.

Happiness and laughter fill the air as I jump
From the glistening waves that try to pull me in.
You build a castle with your left hand
And eat a frozen treat with the other.

You spread a fuzzy blanket to sit back and wait,
For the time has come for you to be speechless.
In awe you see, your eyes sparkling bright,
Right at the horizon, is a sunset.

    I have always loved sunsets and the way the illuminate the area. This poem speaks of that moment when you glance over at the sky and your breath is knocked away by the beauty.

    I have never seen a sunset before, at least not a proper one, and this poem makes me imagine it clearly.
