Chasing Sunsets

Chasing Sunsets

144 miles to Amarillo

14 dead armadillos

and counting…


faded, painted

road lines

Back sweat drench

I maintain speed

in my ’88 Corvette

chasing sunsets

pink and blue hues

I head west

as darkness sets

in my rearview mirror.

    I love this , Lately I’ve been doing a lot of that, chasing sunsets , living on the road and traveling the west . Been in NM lately and I still find the amounts of beautiful sunsets amazing , coming from new England we never saw so many with all the cloudy days .
    Nice writing !…….Ed

    Loved this Valerie. As a nature photographer I chase sunsets and once I capture them on film I realize that each and every one is beautifully different.
