Sky Glow

It’s a warm and surreally serene night.

A great milky wheel of stars
rises wet and shivering from the waves
at midnight’s horizon,
and the silver pale light of a gibbous moon
settles on the sea
glistening its tinsel-crested heaving bosom.

Moonlight rushes with
every rolling wave to the shore
as if the light itself was pulling the waves,
The moon had cast
the great net of silver light
and gathered up the whole sea
to haul it to the shore
wave by wave.
