Sunset Over the Caribbean

Some of the prettiest sunsets I've seen have been over the water while cruising. Here are three of the shots we took during our last Caribbean cruise.

Listen to the sunset,
Hear its silent sigh
As it falls down the horisen
Warning, the moon is nigh

Listen to the sunset
Hear its silent threat
That darkness will be upon us
It makes everyone upset

Listen to the sunset
The vanity of its words
How beautiful this sunset is
With its colour, and birds

Listen to the sunset
See its pretty hue
But I cant enjoy the sunset
If I am not with you

All the pretty colours are meaningless
So are the birds, and the sounds
Because it all means nothing to me
If you are not around

Just remember this though,
Promise you wont forget,
Even if your far away,
We'll be watching the same sunset

So listen to the sunset
Enjoy its beauty true
When you see it, think of me
And I will think of you

  10. Happy Skywatch Friday from Marit!

  12. Beautiful sunsets and I'm thinking about drinking one of those fun cruisey cocktails while watching them! Lovely way to move from day to night (knowing cruises I'm sure it wasn't the end of your day!). If those pretty words are from the Hunger Games, maybe I should read those books (or at least watch the movie).

  13. A very pretty sunset and nice shots of it - you're making me remember my Caribbean cruise.

  14. Like a gold coin slipping into piggy bank. Great series.

  15. Wow - truly breathtaking!

  16. Love the poem. An amazing end to the day!

  17. I enjoyed reading this poem. I liked the "listen" approach to the sunset. Nice post.

  18. Stunning shots!
    I think that might just be all that was needed on a cruise. :)

  19. Hard to believe that someone's sunset is another person's sunrise. It looks as though it is just slipping over the edge of the world.

  20. Oh how beautiful!!!!
