The distinction of the minaret in the setting sun;
The contrasting red sky,
a sight lasting only for a few minutes a day!
The emotions and thoughts at that fleeting moment,
very contrasting to that of the rest of the day!
Experience it yourself, by gazing in to the red sky.

The setting sun leaves the sky red. From my lens in Male' City

Within a span of a few minutes
witness so many different natural wonders,
playing with our sight!
What’s real, what’s apparition?
The sun lowering itself;
or the earth we stand on, rotating face?
My eyes tell me the sun is lowering itself behind the horizon.
Scientific facts tell me otherwise!

The setting sun multiplying itself; From Thulhadhoo island, Maldives

The setting sun, with its contrasting face,
can be white, red, or even black!
A lesson in itself for mere mortals;
reminding us to be ready to welcome unexpected change!

The sun on the downward bound; in fact it is this portion of the earth rotating away from the sun

It can be rays, it can be a fire ball, it can be defined
It can be splattered, it can be a blob, it can be a stroke of a brush.

The sun as a fire ball; Sun set from the Kuda Bandos Island

I call this my bleeding sun!

Take a moment longer to think;
to think about the contrasting image;
the different image just because of another change;
the change in how we see something because of its angle,
because of its situation, because of a mindset!

The best way to show how tall you are! The sun helps!

sun trying to hide? or the cloud trying to cover the sun?
