Poetry Friday: Lying Down

Lying Down
The sun rolls like a
burning ball between lashed
trees, ready to sleep.
Lorie Ann Grover, 2014

The sun was a luminous ball of fire yesterday, and the moon so lovely and bright!

Wearing my ballet pink tights today :)

Lorie, the poem and photo compliment each other. Lovely description of sunset. Might you consider placing these in the REFLECT WITH ME: Summer Serenity virtual gallery that I will unveil later this month. You can read more at

Beautiful, both the poem and the photograph. Living in the desert I am privileged to experience majestic sunsets every day. Thanks for sharing yours. = )
