Beautiful Sunset

My postings have been scarce of late. Let’s just say that my personal life has taken a turn toward the unusual. Not bad, just different.

Today I was thinking of the Yeats’ poem Lake Isle of Innisfree:

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.

I yearn to escape to that peaceful glade, but my place is in the bustling world, at least for now.

But there is still beauty here. Some pictures of sunset…
