The Last Ray of Sun by Peter Kurdulija

What do you call the light that permanently imprints itself into the deepest corner of your cerebral real estate? Just a memorable one, divine, sublime?

The star was going down fast, as it was just a matter of ‘to get it over and done with‘ a daily sunset routine – until that moment.

Like it was switched on by some all powerful hand residing somewhere in the center of a kingdom of light, the sunbeam reached across the valley, bringing all the associated attributes with it, like joy and warmth, just for a few moments, before disappearing altogether. The blue cold haze drowned the beautiful Hawkes Bay valley, but not before the last ray of sun got there first.

I was standing in awe … for a while in fact, still in disbelief. Review button and LCD screen confirmed it did happen.

Sweet. I’ll treasure selfishly the melody of breeze passing through the treetops, the smell of golden grass and feel of fallen leafs under my feet. Not to worry, I left something to share with you. Here it is.
