long past day
simmering into sunset
For today’s #TankaTuesday Challenge, I tried a Shadorma, a Spanish 6-line syllabic poem that uses the syllables 3/5/3/3/7/5. The theme for today’s challenge was “The Longest Day”, which immediately filled my mind with images of sunshine, beaches, and summer. This particular photo is from our family trip to the Virginia Beach area last year, but I’m sure I have many other sunrise-over-beach shots that I’ve taken over the years. And I undoubtedly have a few sunset ones as well. I think something about a beach compels me to take a photo, especially with the sun slipping on the horizon. Do you share this compulsion? Do you prefer sunrises or sunsets?
