Sunset over the Island
Red and gold flushed the sky
magnificent and consuming
the summer day disappearing
but I want it to stay.
Brown haired, brown skinned child
playing over the grassy hill
no cares to distract him
lost in the moment.
The tent, our home for the night
cosy interior, just me and my son
after the adventures of the day
warmth and dreams embalm.
Can I hold on to this moment?
I recall it in my mind
if time were timeless
I’d visit that fading sunset again.
