The sunset looked like a painting

At the end of the day,

Take a deep breath, 

While lifting your face,

Toward the horizon,

Relax, admire the colors,

Painted across the sky,

Let the beauty bring you joy.

Lake Louisa State Park is a gorgeous state park located in Clermont, FL and is one of my favorite! Go out to this web-site and learn about the park’s history.

http://www.floridastateparks.org/lakelouisa/default.cfm

(from the Web) A short drive from Orlando, this park is noted for its beautiful lakes, rolling hills and scenic landscapes. Lake Louisa, the largest in a chain of 13 lakes, is designated an Outstanding Florida Water Way. Lake Louisa, Lake Hammond and Lake Dixie, the park’s most accessible lakes, provide opportunities for fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Anglers can fish in four of the park’s six lakes, but gasoline powered engines are not allowed. Primitive camping facilities are available for equestrians. For hikers, there are more than 25 miles of trails. The park also has a full-facility 60-site campground and 20 furnished cabins for rent.

Enjoy each moment!

When Evening turns to Sunset…..

When Evening turns to Sunset.....
When Evening turns to Sunset…..

You bring us your beauty at the end of each day,

Shared so unselfishly.

No one really notices beyond the brilliance that you offer,

When evening turns to sunset that your display is scientific – no matter.

You ceremoniously paint the western sky with your light,

Bringing dramatic, warm, romantic hues of color for all to admire.

You guide us to the horizon with your nightly descend,

As we stare in still wonder never taking for granted this amazing sight.

Some days you’re aided with clouds and other aspects of nature,

Maybe birds soaring high one last time this day.

If one is so inspired we may be standing by a lake,

To see your beauty not once, but twice as it spreads on the surface.

Reflections of emotion caught in the beams of your light,

To be remembered and imprinted in our mind.

We thank you for your contribution at the end of this day,

And look forward until tomorrow when you become visible to us again.
