Sunset

The sun sets on the water like orange paint spilled all over the ocean.
It seeps into the deep.
I wait with quiet anticipation.
Lips parted, breath held.
And in an instant this ageless miracle is gone.
I will have to wait again until tomorrow.

I'll be there with Dan.

Just keep your fingers crossed he and I don't get on a flight to JFK instead.

Guess what - I'm on the same continent as you.

And for most of yesterday, I was in the same country as you!!
