The yellow lambent moon sent its rays across the shimmering sea. A balmy breeze moved the waves in a rolling fashion towards the beach. Crabs hurried and dived into the foam. Distant horns sounded as they passed A mighty lighthouse, that sent its warning. It was a peaceful night, as I sat alone On the clean sand of the long beach. From afar, I could hear revellers drinking, And some even ventured to sing some sea songs. I felt at peace, alone, on the vast beach. No emotions resonated into heartbreak, For I knew my dear wife was safe at home. She’d worry about this world full of evil, But there are things that could not be helped. Time for me to go home and relax, But for a moment I sat still in the warm breeze, And watch the waves rolling creating foam. I stood up and turned resolutely home, To enjoy my love of love in peace.

When the moon is out, it's the perfect time to relax and take in the sights and sounds of the water. You have a wonderful sense of beauty and romance, Victor.

Having a sense of peace is one of the most important emotions one can have, Victor. I'm pleased that you've found serenity.

The sea, so akin to soul and spirit -- how feeling hearts seek to stay buoyant and sound within and upon life's, often turbulent, surface currents and deeply churning depths. I do believe that caring couples are only briefly parted in the physical -- when the veil lifted, awaits an eternity of blissful reunion together in a far more compassionate and lovelier place. Beautifully expressed my friend!

A state of peace when one feels no rising waves of tension in the heart. The sea is calm too and the moon, bright in the sky. The sprawling beach is almost empty except a few revelers. These blissful moments are so beautifully captured.

What a beautiful picture of serene peace found in rolling waves on a "long beach." Yet, there is a promise of an extended experience in the promised love of your wife. So utterly charming and very romantic Victor. Thank you for sharing this beautiful experience.
