She takes out her palette, watercolors, array of brushes and starts painting the sky. Golden hues, a touch of blue, a splash of pink. She fills in the clouds with a dark gray, not worrying about coloring outside the lines. She sketches tree silhouettes with black charcoal and draws a few leaves here and there. She edges in faint shapes and shadows of rolling hills in the background. With one last and swift brushstroke, she drops in the sun, adding a bit of mystic glow. She then stands back to watch her creation. Nature is the greatest artist. And I say, thank you, for this work of art, for there is nothing like ending the day with a violet sunset, knowing a new beginning is on the horizon.

This poetic prose piece was inspired by the sunset tonight, as I took a picture of the sky and felt grateful for such a beautiful sight and the many gifts of nature. Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving and thank you always for reading and your support. xx
