The sunsets

My mother used to say that the world is full of opportunities and you have to go after them, you know?

—Of the landscapes, I have seen them all.

The sunsets, when the sun gives in to the night and all the surroundings are bathed in multi-coloured light. From the mountains and from the coastal plains.

From the steppes and the tundras, where the seas of grasses grow, and where the pine trees climb to soaring heights. The lands of the tropical ceiba trees, or the deserts with their fine sandy dunes, where, as you walk, you may encounter the palm trees and take shelter yourself from that all embracing sun that devours everything in its path.

 Perhaps, en lesser occasions, but I have equally contemplated the dawns… when the world is only a whispered promise
