The sunset is a short-lived period that begins in the evening and also ends there creating perhaps a moment of pause, a time for stress release. It definitely wipes out the cares of the day and assures a restful, calm night.
You are asked to captivate these fleeting golden moments.
Your theme could be subjective or objective; literal or metaphorical:
A brief blip of time out of a day
that captures people; they stand enthralled.
Whether at window seat or on a beach, they
gaze skyward as if shouts of colors call.
From lemon ice to strawberry pink,
an artist’s dream of painting the glory
of colors formed by Mother Nature’s wink,
ever found in romantic stories.
Deepening into streaks of scarlet,
cameras clicking like crickets to catch
the purple plum of a fine claret.
Indigo inks the swell of sky to match
night’s showcase for stars. A contented feeling
fills heart, is part of a moment, fleeting.
