La Magnifique Sunset πŸŒ‡πŸ’–

The other day, I stumbled upon the most beautiful sunset I have seen in a while.

One that caught me by surprise and made me break into a smile.

So many shades, like a painter’s canvas,

Or a writer’s cathartic poetic stanza.

Just stood there soaking in the beauty with a fixed gaze,

Nature’s magnanimity and magnificence never fails to amaze.

Left me with the profound realization,

Just like every sunset promises a new dawn,

In the same way, the bad times eventually gives way to the good ones.

Which ushers in promises of new hope, some laughter and even some dance.

So, no matter how awful was the day,

Keep some faith in Mother nature’s mysterious ways,

When you least expect, she will send the most beautiful surprise your way.

One that will momentarily make you forget your worries and take all your stress away. πŸ’—πŸ’—

Due to the relaxations in the lockdown restrictions imposed in my city, Last weekend stepped out to have lunch at a friend’s house..they have a beautiful south west facing balcony and the sunset view from there was just breathtaking…clicked endless pics…sharing a few with you all..do let me know if you like it. What are your thoughts or realisations on seeing such beautiful sunrises and sunsets? Do tell πŸ˜ŠπŸ’Ÿ

  1. Such a beautiful sunset πŸŒ‡πŸ’–πŸŒ†
    The bright streaks of orange yellow are particularly breathtaking. Nature sure can cure, and inspire. Some to watch, some to paint and some to write a beautiful poem. Great pictures too!
    My office window used to have a view like this, and I saw many great sunsets from there.
    I don’t see too many sunrises πŸ˜€ but I love sunsets too much. They evoke a sense of peace and calm in my mind, and sometimes a bit of sadness too, don’t know why…

    1. Thank you DebπŸ˜„…you’re always far too kind (not complaining) 😜 and if this is the kind of view you saw every day from office, did you manage to do any work till the sun went down and gave way to darkness? If I were you, I’d be daydreaming like nobody’s business untill caught and scolded by my manager for wasting billable hours πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  3. Firstly the pics are gorgeous!!! Secondly, your words justify the beauty of the pictures, write up is as beautiful as the sunset πŸ™‚ also…why some dance? It should be plenty of dance!! ❀ love the message, I completely agree. Sunsets leave me with nothing but happiness πŸ™‚

    1. Gee thanks….if I could do even 10% justice to picturesque sunset, dude I am awfully happy πŸ˜€ and sunsets for me, make me realize how trivial we are, and our worries are in the greater scheme of things so I should not constantly worry and fret and sometimes allow myself to just be. It awakens the zen in me you could say πŸ’ŸπŸ’Ÿ
