As I witness the most beautiful sunset I have ever experienced
I can’t help but ponder the stilling surreality of this magnificent planet.
The sky is filled with an amazing array of colour –
warm oranges and dark pinks morph into seductive shades of gold.
Streaks of light glow from the same pallet and twist
around mountainous cloud formations
that perfectly compliment the jagged landscapes with which they dance.
I dare not take a photograph
no man-made technology could ever hope
to reproduce something so profound
as this moment
which has arisen in my percept
as if it were gifted to me by my creator
intended to be experienced and never re-lived.
As I take in this incredible sight, I can’t help but contemplate
the seemingly uncanny perfection
of a beautiful life-harbouring planet
floating alone in a cold and desolate solar system.
It dawns on me that we Humans are living in Heaven
and we so often fail to recognise it.
