Rain at Sunset

My favorite part of the day

is when the sun

dips behind the mountains.

As the golden turns

to purple,

that is my favorite

moment.

The deep lavender

sets over the horizon

and paints pink

splashes in the sky.

The five minutes

after the sun sets–

that is the best time.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Rain splatters

the rooftops,

the pavement,

the trees–

this drenched,

soggy

sky reminds me of

home.

Of the bright green

trees

and the scent of pine

drifting between the

raindrops.

~~~~~~~~~~~

The sunset

and the rain–

if only we could

mingle their

beauties together,

perhaps we

could create the

perfect day.
