Poetry and Musings

As I gaze upon a sunset

My memories go afar

Long ago before I was conceived

The start of life

The start of a beginning

All begins with a thought

Just like this sunset

I know a Creator had a thought and it came to pass


When something comes to pass

There has to be a design

An intelligent complex in place

A spectacular DNA functions behind the scenes


A Mind created these array of colors for this sunset

Each precise location for each color

A bright mind can create magic, beauty and continuity 

But the most profound thing of this is its wonder


Like a wonder of a child who notices

The simplicity of life

And doesn’t take for granted

Like roll-off-your-chair belly laughter

The swelling of your stomach to the point where it hurts to breathe


They experience laughter and play like it’s the first time they ever undertook it

It always surprises the child how much energy he or she has throughout the day


Returning to this sunset

It’s just like this child

Filled with absolute awestruck wonder

We too, can be like this child

But first we must humble ourselves

Humble ourselves to the point where we accept, maybe we don’t know

Everything about this large exquisite universe of ours

Just maybe

Humble ourselves

To the point of amazement

Amazement is where all the splendor will begin    

    Just like this childlike sunset

    So true it the sunrise and sunset is pure, if our heart and mind is pure the surrounding would become beautiful. If we can spread a little faith and love making it a chain imagine the beauty and the purity in our surrounding..🙏
