Sunsets of Love

by jake cosmos aller

My favorite time of day
Is sunset
As the sun begins to set,

I pour a glass of wine for my wife
Or sometimes rum or whiskey
And sit down to dinner.

Drinking our drink
While watching the sunset,
Over the western sea.

Sometimes, we take a walk
At sunset and watch the sun
Sink beneath the west sea
Off of Yeoungjong Island
Near the Incheon airport town.

We live on an island
So the sea is all around us,
The park nearby
Has splendid sea views.

And the mountain top
Is a great place
To catch the sunset
Over the ocean.

My favorite sunset story
Though comes from Barbados,
In the Caribbean sea.

At the right time,
Of the year,
Usually in winter,

At sunset,
When the weather cooperates
With a few clouds in the sky
As the sun sets,

You might be lucky
You might experience the green flash
as the entire sky turns bright green,

for a flash of a second,
then settles down into evening calm.
as the sun sets into the Caribbean sea.

I experienced it four times
Four times in three years
Always, a special occasion.

the locals always claim
if you look for the green flash
it will not flash

but when you are ready
it will show its magic
and you will be lucky
the next day.

And we celebrated
With a glass of Mt Guy rum
A perfect way
To end a perfect sunset.

But in the end,
As long as I have my wife
By my side,

The sunset will always
Be a magical ending
Of another day.

In our earthy paradise,
Spent with the love
Of my life by my side.
