As I lay on the minute golden grains of sand, I looked up at the brilliant sky, adorned with flashes of pink and orange and purple, mirroring the colours of a flawless seasoned apricot. The goddess-like sun’s face is being embraced by the demure navy fingertips of the skyline. The dull light of the sun somehow manages to kindle my senses in a way I had never seen or felt before. Everything felt like it came to a standstill and the effect of the light made the scene look like one in a painting. The waves break gently into white foam on the black beach.

The sea turns blood-red and darkness creeps up like a thief. The necklace that once reflected its passionate energy of fury moments ago now resembled a mere costume jewellery. Perhaps the loss of the necklace’s elegance and sophistication was the reason to why it was disregarded. Pity the owner did not see the necklace radiating its splendour at its peak.

The darkness overwhelming the sky seems to portray that the earth is closing its eyes to rest in preparation for the next day; therefore, we humans too need to rest and give ourselves a free time to forget all our burdens and unwind for a while. Also, as I see the sun sinking as its colour fades from orange to crimson red, blending through the fading sunset to eventual darkness, it stirs my heart. As a Christian it is as though God is subtly unfolding His wonder and power through the mystery of nature.
