Sunset

IMG_0938

I’m sitting here writing, every so often stopping to watch the glowing red/gold/purple sky. It’s my favourite time of day. There is a calmness, a warmth, a drawing in that happens in the transition from day to night, as though the rhythms of the world are slowing, taking me with them.

There are fears, sometimes, to be found in the dark of night, though candles and fairy lights can keep them at bay. But here, in the gleam and shadow of sunset, lies magic and melancholy, bittersweet.

Do you have a favourite time of day?

  1. For me it is the ineffable joy of a dewy morning on a summer’s day, with the promise of heat to follow the nippy air. There are stirrings and murmurings, stretched limbs and scratchy eyes and everything is to come, everything remains possible

  2. my fav time of the day: bed time at night! Alone in my bed I can meditate and quietly make plans or talk to my boyfriend or decide to write a post! Thanks for sharing yours Helen πŸ™‚

  3. This is beautiful. Sunset is also my favourite time of day as well, partly because I can never be enough of a morning person to be up and about in time to enjoy the sunrise! Although a few weeks ago, I was walking through a city centre at stupid o’clock in the morning on my way to the train station and it was amazing how beautiful it was with no one around and very gentle morning light πŸ™‚
