The Dragon Eyed Sunset

Although the skies were gray and not very inviting, we decided to head down to take a late day beach walk and enjoy whatever sunset might appear. It is mid-April.

As we walked, we noticed a beautiful plume cloud begin to form.

 and then the sun emerged below the clouds . . .

The cloud plume began to dissolve from the winds aloft.

and then it was over;

". . . rippling at water's 
edge, as
sunset splays one last outburst 
of gleam, her warming breath
lay your troubles aside while
earth turns a tired cheek - 
her last gasp of solitude, a
soliloquy of peace."

(Poem by Richard Provencher)

The contrast of white sand and dark blue night sky are striking here.
