Romance, Sunsets, and the Passage of Time
Tonight’s sunset…. Intensifying and changing moment by moment, more complicated, more breathtaking, and more intoxicating, all with passage of time.
Tonight’s sunset made me think of one of my favorite poets and poems…
Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s “How Do I Love Thee”
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…..
I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
…………….. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! — and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
Savoring every sunset!
