After the amazing Fall Harvest full moon Wednesday came the most beautiful sunset Thursday evening! It truly left me breathless-the oranges and yellows were almost blindly bewitching!
Sunsets bring back long-lost memories like a sunset I remember after a day trip with a young man I had a crush on at Erskine. I still remember a beautiful sunset ending a memorable day in my life.
Recently our class at Erskine had a big reunion but it coincided too close to our YaYa reunion-still memories of Erskine and the adorable little town of Due West linger within me.
In the Fall Azalea magazine-Ellen Hyatt-a local gifted poet, writes a poem called Autumn Sunset. I love this phrase from it…
…Colors in the sky wow and awe. Yellow, bright but not blinding, patches of orange, wisps of pink, fevered red-sailors delight; a quiet layer of violet drifted in like a memory or a sigh.
So until tomorrow… don’t we all wonder at some point in our lives how many sunsets we will see before we start our last journey around the sun. It will never be enough.
Today is my favorite day-Winnie the Pooh
And speaking of beauty and shades of pink… encore azaleas, roses and sasanquas beyond beautiful-they must know it is pink breast cancer month.
***Mandy and the children had no school Friday so they came to enjoy the Scarecrows in the Square and a chance to pick out a pumpkin 🎃 to decorate-fun day …pictures coming soon!
