The Right To The Evening Light

Glowing sunset over the horizon

A beautiful sunset to end the day

I crave to be by the sea at sunset
for so long I have been denied
I love to see the changing colours of the evening light
slowly faded into the night

Set against the splendour of colours
the reflections in the shimmering water
of the glowing white ball
gradually disappearing as darkness falls

At times the sky is in a sad gray and neutral
 the sun, a round patch of crimson
dipping silently into the water
bidding goodbye from the horizon

If I could be free I would linger and stay
there would be joy 
to see how nature paints
on each different day

of the confining, 
an unwritten rule that man made
denied my right to such beautiful sights
