Paradisiacal

Tranquil
the ocean
sun sinks
sky orange-red
with distance
comes moon
each wave
mutes night
circling gulls
waves and air
water and evening
infinite horizon...

Everything
utters night
losing shape
eyes closing
darkness in wind
each wave
the water
sky and moon
go together
with these words
I paint the sky dark...

    I am always mesmerized by the sea, the waves...the sunset and full moon over it is beautiful...your poem pulled me in, wrapped me in beauty and that last line, wow....powerful, like a waves crashing against the shore! Great poem

    Hi Kenneth, Firstly thank you for your kind comments on my poem. I was pleasantly surprised to read yours, as I miss nights like that on my veranda in Noosa, the "everything utters night", leaving the mind to reach for memories. Lovely!
