A beautiful sunset...and such fitting words also...so enjoyable....I love Ghostest with the Mostest...
Really good stuff. This type of verse is harder to pull off than is seems and you've made it look effortless. bravo!
I love the clouds and colors, great shot Brenda.
Have a great weekend.

Lovely sky! I like the feminine touch - the rime does enhance in ways that would not have occurred to me.
Loved the lines "...It's a feminine sky. It has blushed"
p.s. these days this art-of-blushing is fast fading :)))
Love the idea of a feminine evening sky because it blushes! Does that mean dawn is a male sky? (Maybe I shouldn't go there!)
Nice words and a very colorful evening as is your poem.
I was expecting humor, your usual style, and thought this didn't have but you have done it again....it made me smile to see the feminine sky blushing...
"With the angry sunset it's facing.
It's a feminine sky. It has blushed."
Enjoyed the read!!
Sweet sunset, almost delicate... there shines its feminine sky, blushed... as you say.
Most beautiful lines which capture the spirit of the poem..
"It's a feminine sky. It has blushed"
Loved this evening..
Beautiful and colorful words to make an enchanting evening Brenda!
Oh I have written kinda like this , sorry don't mind as I wasn't aware that our thoughts would be close on an 'evening' ! :)A pleasurable read :)
Gorgeous sky and the perfect words make it all wonderful.
How alluring to await next days evening; with such a role model of a sight.
Please have a good new week.
Lindo poema! A imagem é muito bonita também!
Fantastic photo, and wonderful poem..What a way to spend the evening watching the sunset!
Reminds me of a song from my childhood - "Now the day is over, Night is drawing nigh. Shadows of the evening stretch across the sky."
Everything beautiful over here! Love the shot and the words are so enchanting with the photo! Thanks for sharing. Anne
Awww..."moments of glory are few" How true :)
Beautiful sunset and words!
As always, the words and the image match each other totally!
Have a great weekend ahead & look forward to *seeing* you again next time,
Brenda. I am speechless.
Give me a moment to gather my thoughts.
For me, this little gem of wordcrafting...
Geez. I can't even think how to say this.
I loved this. It is the emotion I feel when I see sunset. I just never knew how to say it.
Please send this into a poetry contest or for inclusion in an anthology.
This was beyond excellent.
Still. Almost. Speechless.
Lovely stop this morning!
I love trying to capture those few moments of glory with my camera...
