Sunset at the Pier

Sunset at the Pier: 40 × 50 Acrylic Painting ( Artsherpa Tutorial)

When the sun spills forth on the water’s edge;

Like liquid gold beyond its ledge.

A humbled heart gasps at this wondrous sight;

Of warmth caressing the sea with brilliance and light.


I know not where these birds they fly;

They make me wonder; they make me sigh.

Then wishing for wings all feathered bright;

My spirit soars like a dazzling kite.


Of weathered wood, an idle pier;

Into the warmth, it draws me near.

To dream away into the distant high;

Beckons me on, this painted sky.


Such sparkling hues; melting orange and blushing rose.

Can nature ever be captured in simple prose?

A prayer, a hymn, an ode to revere;

All praise to the Lord for these blessings so dear.
