Night Watch

Night Watch


The night dances in on a purple sunset

edged in radiant streams of gold.


The evening star winks seductively

at the shy rising moon


The sound of the surf’s eternal march

echoes across the dunes,

carried on a salt breeze.


Castles and footprints forgotten,

soon to be washed away.


Sea oats wave adieu to the light,

as sand crabs scurry home

to their sandy dens.


Silhouettes of egrets flock overhead,

marsh-bound for the night.

Signaling the time for

Night watch
