Shared Sunset

Shared Sunset by Jonathan Hill, Old Erowal Bay, New South Wales

Driving home along the old wool road
Not long now to our humble abode

The groceries from Bilo on the back seat
Beside the restless hungry dogs who are wet from the beach

A synchronised sigh as we peer up ahead
Clouds apricot gold sharply outlined in red

Bold columns of light explode through the clouds
that float amidst a lilac and smooth silver shroud

I reach for your hand our palms gently kiss
I truly do treasure moments like this. [1]
