Azores Evening

by The Cheesesellers Wife aka Kim Whysall-Hammond

Moonlight  has banished an ocean of stars,
pouring  molten silver across the water.
Murmuring waves remember a primal ocean,write poetry in their foam,
erase the day from a busy beach.
A harsh breeze crashes across treetops
as if breaking on a coral reef
and distant sea-birds call evenings end,
sharp disembodied sentinels of the night.

  1. Great use of imagery loved the molten silver on the water.

  2. “and distant sea-birds call evenings end,
    sharp disembodied sentinels of the night.”
