Sunset

Picture Credit: Google Images


Golden rays fading
A photographer’s delight
Artists and poets

Yearning  to record
Nature’s setting a beauty 
For posterity

Submitted for One Single Impression with prompt 'Sunset'

  1. 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.

  4. 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! Amy

  5. 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...

  12. Nice set of haiku/senryū, Hank.:)
    The sun sets so often, like every
    day and I am sure that most every
    one of them gets it's picture
    taken someplace!
