a moment of beautiful – sunset over the St. John River

with 8 comments

the space: the St. John River at dusk

the beautiful: sunset over the river

Last evening as we drove home after a visit to my sister’s home, orange was on my mind.  I was thinking of the bright orange pumpkins in the gardens, the orange of Japanese Lanterns, the orange of the turning leaves, and the orange of the running lights on the trucks on the highway.  Then, as the sun went down, we were treated to the most beautiful orange, the color of the sunset over the St. John River.

A lovely introduction to the month of October……………..

hauling sun

~

eighteen-wheeled tractor pulls,

hauls the loaded b-train

~

gears down for the grade, snags

light from the sunset, wanes

~

and leaks from the headlamps

pushed forward into night

~

ahead, on the dark road,

a cone of borrowed light
