It’s a busy time here on the Island –
Everyone is digging and planting ~ flowers, gardens and fields.
But even in the midst of all the spring planting flurry
I keep my eye on the sky ~ especially in the evening.
I watch the sun as it begins to set, and if there are scattered clouds,
I will drop my gardening tools in a flash, jump in the car with my camera and head for the shore.
I know that I am in for a glorious show.
Just in time! It’s only just begun.
As the sun sinks behind the horizon, light begins to play on the clouds
The rocky cliffs reflect the golden rays
The scene changes moment by moment.
Off to the left of the horizon, shade of pink and mauve and purple swirl.
Picture me ~ snapping away with my camera. I’m shivering because it’s a cool evening
but I am oblivious.
It doesn’t seem to matter how many times I watch a sunrise or a sunset,
I am always captured by its glory
filled with awe and praise for the Author of this beauty.
The heavens declare His glory
