Once upon a setting Sun




Once upon a beach of the Eastern shore waves gently stroke the land
and seabirds fuss over spots to squat and warm the new lain eggs.
Grains of sand gritty between toes warmed by the setting Sun
sinking slow, a pastel light show with lavender and magenta
and blackbirds are flung across the pink canvas of heavens gate.
A last golden flash radiates the horizon and slowly stars appear-
Luna shows her radiant face glancing briefly at her fleeting love;
as together they will never share the sky.
