A Moonlit Seashore

The tides slowly rise and sink.
Shoreline changes with the tide.
Looking where sea meets the sky,
The moon bathes the sea.

Star trails above the shoreline
Leading a pathway to me.
A magical sight for sure
Where sea meets the sky.

Silhouettes of pelicans
Playing in the wind currents,
Diving for fish in the sea.
I watch with delight.

Wavelets ebb onto shore,
Shimmering at my wet toes.
Sea sounds whispering to me,
Soothing my soul and mind.

    Thank you for your comment. I'm on the mend. I must where my neck brace for two months. My IPad set up is great. It's on a movable arm that can be adjusted to sit at the level of my eyes so my neck and head are straight. PS and I will be recouping together.
