Reserved Seats for Sunset Watchers

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,

light curtsies,

gracefully exiting

into the shadows

at curtain call.

Ebb tide conceives

pregnant musings

o’er whispering waves

in rhythmic cadence,

romancing  the soul

as twilight segues to nightfall.

Darkness shrouds

and the world rolls up like a scroll.
