Forlorn foghorn cries
Fish splash, breaking the surface
Crickets harmonize

Darkness descending
Objects become shadows
Day fades away

A lone osprey soars
Accompanied by music
My ears cannot hear

Darkness descending
Pulling us under its cloak
Blocking the twilight

Gulls soar through the sky
Framed against the sun
Skimming o’er the waves

Darkness descending
Embracing sun’s last rays
Another day ends

The sun greets the sea
Twilight surrenders
Time slows for no man

Moment by moment
Day makes way for night
There’s no turning back

Darkness descending
Like the final curtain
After an encore

Omnipresent stars
Twinkling in the blackened sky
Silently observe

Aah . . . that’s better!

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
