I gave myself a challenge of a Haiku that rhymes, about the sunset, without the words sun or sunset.


Fading into  night

Red glowing ball of  pure light

Now it’s out of sight

    Great one, Shola! You extended the concept of Haiku and made life a lot more difficult for many of us 🙂

    Lovely – I can visual the sun on a hot day in summer big and beautiful on a cloudless night as it sets, casting its bright shadows on our walls. Blessings – Patty

      Thank you Patty! I live in the city and I do not often get to watch the sun setting. Last month I visited Lake Geneva and got to slow down and watch a beautiful sunset, from whence came the inspiration for this Haiku
