Sunset ~ An Original Poem by Dave Lucas



Lowering its head
its majesty the Sun
yielded the rivers and forests
the gardens and parking lots
to winter's warriors

In brave retreat
summer handed autumn a golden key
whispering in her ear
"our time will again come"
as she slipped the key deep into her white pocket

The Colour and warmth
came thru my glass window
bathing me in a red sunset light
as a reminder
that I am growing older, another year

Should we meet again in the promise of spring
I will remember you
as I cross the next islands in my life's path
with my passengers, hope and dreams
accompanying me, win or fail.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
