Submerged Sunset

For those back on shore a brilliant yellow sun hovers precariously above a flat expansive western horizon.

Like a dry swimmer testing the water it first dips a little into the water and then more and more as it’s seeming water confidence grows. Eventually it is gone beneath the distant waves.

Here under the water yellow light from the horizon is caught in the myriad crests and troughs of a rough sea. Light sparking magic that very same sunset is brought down here to me.

For a couple of minutes this beautiful display of gold light played out out from above before fading to green and then blue as twilight began.
