The sun is about to set. I, too, am ready to leave. I have been sitting on this beach since three in the afternoon. The soft swell of the waves as they come crashing on the shore has calmed my troubled mind and heart. I feel my breathing come to a slow pace. Though my back hurts for sitting too long, I cannot take away my eyes from the beauty of the unending sky before me. I can feel the darkness slowly enveloping the mountains behind me. In a short while, the sun will bid my part of the world goodbye. I continue to revel at the fading breath- taking sight infront of me. The darkness slowly takes over as the sea engulfs the last glimpse of the sun’s rays. And I stand up to go home.
