Sunset At Sea

We glided through emerald waters
Leaving a trail of snow-white froth
Behind us; the expanse of quiet blue
Stretched as far as the eye could see,
And there was utter calm and peace
Save for the pleasant splash of waters.


A very gentle breeze swirled around
Ruffling my hair with salty fingers,
And flirting unashamedly with me;
There were no more seagulls,
The last one left us when we left port
A single golden gull in flight!


Above the sky was a living mosaic
Of purple, pink, yellow and gold;
One could almost hear angels sing
And see them dance with joy;
The tired sun glowed a fiery red
Then slowly sank beneath the sea.


We sailed alone with silent calmness,
As alone I stood on deck and watched
The heavens go gently to sleep;
And I was filled with such a quiet ease
As I had never felt before,
Below me the sea was three miles deep.
