By the Sea

The moon reflects its luminance
As I stand above the flowing waves.
The tide moves evenly in and out
White foam crashes into the caves.

Sea oats whisper in the wind
A gull breaks the night with its cries.
I stand alone taking all this in
And a smile comes into my eyes.

Darkness, darkness all around,
The sand so cool to my feet.
The music of the ocean near,
Yet, silence set in so deep.

A motionless sky beacons to me
While streaming white stars say no.
So I will stay where I be, I’ll not disturb thee
For I really don’t want to go.

Melting clouds drift all about
Just like ghosts beyond the sky.
Now and then there comes a call
As a sea bird soars on by.

Away beyond the shoreline tide
A few lone ships fade and hide.
There they await the dawn
Knowing then their work is done.

Ebbing, peaceful rhythms ever so near;
Quiet solitude engulfs me,
I am calm and I am happy here,
Walking in the night by the sea.
