Night Sea

Cryptic
night sea
Glistens-
as it
Sings to me,
Calls to me.

Waves splash
the seawall,
enticing
my body
with warm,
salty spray.

Dazzling swells
glide inland,
Caressing
the shore-
luring away
soft Virgin Sand.

Enigmatic
night sea,seduced
by summer moon,
invites stars
and shadows
to dance wildly
on its belly.

I also dance.
The night sea
Glistens-
as I
sing to you,
Call to you

but-
Will you
Choose to Listen?
Is that an answer
I hear? Or a
Storm brewing?
