The Manila Bay – the front row to some of the best sunsets. The sky becomes a huge canvass painted with mood-enhancing hues.
But what is it in and about a sunset that casts a magic spell? Sunset gazers have watched enraptured. Countless couples have tied the knot and innumerable more sets of love-struck eyes and lips have locked against the sunset’s enthralling backdrop. Bards and musicians have drawn inspiration from it, just as this poem has been inspired by it:
AN ODE TO SUNSET
Sunset heralds dusk’s descent,
into the shadows
at curtain call.
Ebb tide conceives
o’er whispering waves
in rhythmic cadence,
romancing the soul
as twilight segues to nightfall.
and the world rolls up like a scroll.
