A Moonlit Seashore

Written by: Connie Gildersleeve

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.
