The Crepusular Light
By Lisa Whittington
Sunsets have more color than sunrise.
A chorale of waves in symphony with the sun.
The ocean signs a treaty for my cares and bids me home.
The sky is on fire.
There’s a ceasefire
And beauty is in closure
And a treasure in goodbye
A day’s finale
A era’s denouement.
There is a declaration in the sunset
For life doesn’t come with directions, but it arrives with sunsets everyday.
Every breath at the shore is never wasted
Delight in the blazing sky
A bonfire of the unrest
Skyflame becomes my favorite color
Tide washes the ashes to the high seas
Wash up on shore at my feet
Living is incredible and fascinating
Have you ever seen water set on fire?
I enter the flames
My essence is massaged with every moving tide
kneading my heart
I’ve returned to that which sent me back
and find myself where the music meets the sea
Why do we call the planet earth when it is mainly ocean?
The potent power of its strength is in me.
The King’s Blue,
the ocean is one drop of me
Goddesses don’t worry about shrimp
We eat them.
