This brief poem covers all the bases, Hank. I love "Yearning to record beauty of nature's setting" because, really, that yearning covers everyone, whether artist, poet, or people who have no way of recording it no matter how much they might want to do so.Well done.Kay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie’s Guide to Adventurous Travel
And you captured it just as most yearn too. I second the "True" too!
ah most def...the poet and artist see beauty where no other does...and then try to grab just a piece...
Loved your haiku, Hank. I could spend all day, using every known gradation of the color "red," and still not capture that essence in words. Sometimes, a picture IS worth 1,000 words, but your poem comments on the urge all artists have to communicate moments in Nature to all. You succeeded, my friend!

Nicely said. Try as I might, I can never quite do a sunset justice with a camera. Perhaps it is the glass of wine in my right hand...
Short maybe but the words speak volumes.Yvonne.
Perfectly tranquil piece, Hank. Lovely.Pamela
