SEASIDE SUNSET

Written by: Steven Mossburg

The sleepy sun sinks
Beneath the gray blanket
Of the restless waves

But the earth doesn’t rest

Shadowed shapes linger by the shore
Watching the glowing “good night”
Silhouettes entwine in the twilight
And drift along the sandy beach

The sun winks
And blinks one last time
Then all fades to black and gray

The murmur of the waves
And the whispers of love
Are all that can be heard
