I need time alone –

nothing around me but this

pink and blue sunset

    I like the “pink and blue” sunset. Rarely is a sunset described with those colors!

    Huh, I don’t know if this one works. Reading it again it sounds like I am complaining about the sunset. But really, this sunset embraced me and made me realize how I need a moment to myself now and then to notice the beauty that can only be found by looking skyward. Any suggestions for a reworking of this one?

    Maybe change the second line to

    “a moment to reflect on”

    or maybe

    “time to drink in the sight of”

    but only ’cause you asked… B-)

    How ’bout:

    peaceful solitude,
    nothing around me but,
    this pink and blue sunset

    Or (on same topic)

    indigo hour
    sweet, comforting solitude
    my needed respite

    What about for the first line: My time alone now

    Wow, thanks for the great ideas everyone! Your suggestions capture the spirit of alone time as a precious gift versus my unintended complaint against a sunset. Now I have lots to work with:)
