Abyss

a blushing sky
fall with me
into the abyss

Sunset is my favorite time to visit the beach. It’s quiet, the colors are spectacular, and the waves seem to slow down just a bit. The water curls around my ankles and the sand rolls between my toes, a gentle soothing reminder that it’s time to let the day go and embrace the stillness of stars and the moon. Little by little the light dims, turning the sky from blue to raven, while the water darkens into a peaceful abyss.

Tokens

Standard

seashells roll
in golden waves
tokens of the day

The beach has never been a favorite thing of mine as I’m pretty much allergic to the sun. However, when the sun doesn’t burn quite so bright and heat begins to cool, a walk on the beach becomes something beautiful and soothing to me. The waves sing a calming song and the sand tickles my feet giving my thoughts nothing to do but wander in the wind.
