Beauty of the Sea

Cyprus 29.10 - 11.11.07 369

Early morning

a hush still over the sea

brilliant blue reflected from the sky above

like a field of blue bonnets waving in the breeze

the wave caps glinting

in the sunlight

plaintive cries of seagulls overhead

looking to land upon the waves

watching the sea come alive

Comes the golden afternoon

casting a soft glow

over the rippling sea

while the water sparkles like diamonds

spread out on a blanket of sea green

such beauty that it could almost make you cry

as I walk along the shore

leaving footprints in the sand

that the waves will wash away

still leaving a part of me behind

seashells telling tales of ships and treasures

soon the sun begins to dip low

the greenish blue of the sea

mingles with an orange glow

as the sun slowly slips into the sea

nightfall and the water as black

as the star studded sky above

moonlight shining a silvery path

across the sea

stretching from shore to shore

the only sound waves lapping against the shore

time for dreaming

until the sea wakes to a new dawn
