As the sphere of light slowly descend to the horizon, the clear blue sky now turned blood red as it spread across the land before the sun completely set engulfing the world into the darkness of the night.
Sunsets have been an inspiration for many artists, writers and creative minds, the colors, the slow descend as the night takes over. It’s such a beautiful sight to behold.
The Sunset that ends the day that past for the night to come so that a new day would come
The Sunset opens a new world of new creatures emerging in the darkness after cowering from the protective heat.
The Sunset could be the closing scene of a book or movie
The Sunset is also when we break Fast in Ramadan.
We feel the sunset is a good muse for writers; there are endless possibilities to how one can write a sunset into their story and what it could possibly mean to them and therefore it is the theme for the month of July
Let your creativity run wild; don’t wait for your muse, make it work!
Deadline for this prompt will be on the 31st of July 2012.
