THE SETTING SUN, by Claude Peter Dhuet

Claude Peter Dhuet

I see in the distance before me-
A picture worthy to behold-
Painted in colors of such beauty-
In colors yet untold-

For there lies an ocean beyond my shore -
As far as my eyes can see-
Bathed in the light of the setting sun-
A magical golden sea.

Soft clouds drift by, adorning the sky-
Each with its own design-
Arranged with colors as on an artist’s palette-
Colors that boggle my mind.

A ship that I can hardly see looms on the horizon-
Floating on so vast a sea it’s like a toy-
Enveloped in a haze of purple colors-
Bringing dreams of far off lands as a boy.

A seagull silhouetted by the setting sun-
Knowing now its day is done-
Slowly gracefully flies my way-
Looking for night a place to stay.

I stand there in a momentary silence-
The picture that I see impressed upon my mind-
I wonder if God painted this picture just for me-
A gift for me that’s only mine.

Comment: I was at a friend's house with a large picture window facing the Pacific Ocean. The time was sunset, and the picture I describe is actually what I saw. The reality described makes me think it's my best poem.
