{t} the sunsets

walking along huntington beach
watching my youngest brother chasing after the birds
enjoying the view in paris
having some peace in Italy
corona del mar
on the ski lift in park city
The Sun
Have you ever seen
in your life
more wonderful
than the way the sun,
every evening,
relaxed and easy,
floats toward the horizon
and into the clouds or the hills,
or the rumpled sea,
and is gone-
and how it slides again
out of the blackness,
every morning,
on the other side of the world,
like a red flower
streaming upward on its heavenly oils,
say, on a morning in early summer,
at its perfect imperial distance-
and have you ever felt for anything
such wild love-
do you think there is anywhere, in any language,
a word billowing enough
for the pleasure
that fills you,
as the sun
reaches out,
as it warms you
as you stand there,
empty handed
or have you too
turned from this world-
or have you too
gone crazy
for power,
for things?
Mary Oliver
on my way to the dodger stadium
taking a stroll with my friends
laguna beach
thinking how beautiful nature is in santa barbara
my favorite spot to watch the sunset
