I wrote this a few years ago … and saw a very nice similar one from the wordpress website POESY PLUS POLEMICS …










Dark eastern seashore

A silhouetted pier defined neatly by red marker lights

Night closes with a cadence of muffled drum blackness –

The downbeat of morning commences as

Muted purple evolves into bassoony blue.

Reedy orange opens to brassy apricot overtures

Bowed strings of gold shimmer,

introducing the sun.

Scudding clouds and aqueous crests

Echo colorful reflections of an

Antiphonal Amen.

The sands offer a warm round of applause
