Postcards from Paradise: Nightfall






The sun sinks below the curve of the earth,



bringing a romantic softness to the pastel sky




that grows ever darker


until the distant Moon rises


and blesses us with her beneficent gaze.



Night has fallen in paradise,



The place that we are.



Right here. Right now. 


The perfect Paradise.

Night as not fallen yet...but when it does are skies are a flame with color from the fires burning in the west.

a small bit of beauty while wishing that all are safe.

today your words and gorgeous view of a universal blessing have graced mine.
