Kentucky Sunset

Kentucky Sunset

 

As I sit here planted under this tree watching the shadows lengthen and my sunset fade- My feelings fade with it.  Their intensity is muted by the breeze slipping through the trees. I watch my sunset change from pinks to purples to deep dusky blues that create black silhouettes of the trees.  I patiently wait for Orion to spread its blanket of stars over the sky- Enveloping me in darkest midnight blue pierced by the stars. I wait for the last bird to chirp, the last of the light to fade to velvet darkness.  I am calm and at peace now.

About the Author

From Review: "Charlotte Von Woffle Greer is an artist in the truest sense of the word. Tormented, embattled, strong, fearless and fearful. Curious, and full of wonder yet jaded and defeated at times. An artist shares what they feel. A true and brave artist shares what they feel completely as Charlotte does, in these pages." -Erik Johnson
