Shimmering over the glistening water
Is the glowing distant sunset
Casting down a glimmering reflection
Of vivid yellow and gold.
Sitting above the shadowy tree line
Appearing suspended as it hovers
While mirroring a watery reflection below.
Oh how since creation of this universe that brilliant orb
Has kept its assigned place through the centuries,
Decades and years; months, days, and hours.
The ancient star today remains in silent yet illuminating continuation.
As if prodding me to also persevere and endeavor
In this journey of life in quiet peace and hopeful celebration.
