Everybody talks about sunsetsAll travelers agree about talking about sunsets in these latitudesThere are books filled with nothing but descriptions of sunsetsThe tropical sunsetsYes it’s true they’re splendidBut I really prefer the sunrisesDawnI never miss oneI’m always on the bridgeJumping up and downAnd I’m always alone admiring themBut I’m not going to describe them the dawnsI’m going to keep them for me alone—Blaise Cendrars, “Sunsets”Art Credit Jen Stark

Everybody talks about sunsets
All travelers agree about talking about sunsets in these latitudes
There are books filled with nothing but descriptions of sunsets
The tropical sunsets
Yes it’s true they’re splendid
But I really prefer the sunrises
Dawn
I never miss one
I’m always on the bridge
Jumping up and down
And I’m always alone admiring them
But I’m not going to describe them the dawns
I’m going to keep them for me alone

Blaise Cendrars, “Sunsets”

  21. myownghostshauntme said: It’s true, sunsets are glorious, but they are an ending nonetheless. It’s the rise of the sun that holds all cards because it brings with it, hope.
