Wind Farms and Sunsets

Wind Farms and Sunsets

A Poem by Chris Shaw
"

(wind farms get bad press, but I love them)

"
A setting sun creates a splash,
on Roan beach the turbines turn.
Each blade salutes a crimson sky,
we stand and watch the evening burn

as threads of gold are interspersed
with bloodied cloud, deep clotted red
and stretched across the blackened sand
are pools which show salt water's bled.

Let time stand still, take in this scene,
too soon this gift that's given us
will fade and leave us in the shade,
in silence gone with little fuss.

You took there my friend, such way You have with words, I admire Your talent with description, because it's simple and beautiful the same time, reaching to our hearts with a gentle sense, Your last verse with the shade of warm wistfulness added a magical touch.

Thank You dear Chris for sharing agsin Your bliss with us.

Thank you Jimmy. Was a treat to see.

I love it when an imaginative writer like you comes up with collections that are so unusual yet interesting and also the words sound so good going along together. There isn't one line here that describes this scene in any of usual or expected ways. That's what I love most about good writing (((HUGS))) Fondly Margie

Just beautiful is the sight of the setting sun when day gives way to night- sometimes when I watch the sky changing colours i wish i could just take a brush and paint a picture to capture such beauty that only lasts for a split section of time- no two sunsets will ever be the same so unique and rare only the hand of God could ordain such breathtaking beauty- wonderfullly written🌹

You are welcome Chris. I enjoyed the poem.
I do love wind farms and the whum whum whump, along with the sight of these giants, reminding us that we should be renewing what we take, not plundering. They do look beautiful against a gold sunset, swaying us to their rhythm.

Yes, there's many who think them an eye sore, but I could stand and watch them for hours!
I feel as though I can see it all right in front of me! Love this. The flow is beautiful as well. I love that you chose a subject that not a lot of people focus on, that really adds to how unique this piece is.

You put forth such a beautiful picture. Your words are likened to a painting by an artist that knows exactly the colors he needs to add to complete the scene he or she wants to bring forth. Thank you for your writing, I enjoyed it very much.

Take care - Dave
