The Golden Afternoon: a poem

The sun shone radiantly

In the cerulean sky,

An incandescent bulb

FiercelyΒ blazing

Through space and time

Into earth’s atmosphere.

Ray’s shattering the surface

Of the water, sparks

Bouncing off the glittering ocean

An alchemist’s dream.

The golden light of the afternoon,

Bedazzling, brilliant, blinding.

I wandered along the shore,

Footsteps carving a path

Through the aureate sand,

Washed away by the incoming tide.

A fleeting moment

Of halcyon solitude.

The golden afternoon,

A reflection of the glory

Of the One who made it all.
