Waves of Time
by Peggy Paul

I sit by the window
Watching as the silver trail of moonlight
Dances upon the onyx tide
A single beam of light
Peeks through the dark curtain
Casting its ray upon the gentle waves
That lap weekly against the bulkhead
Just beyond the window
Where I sit in solitude

From my perch I watch that which cannot be seen
The wind's gentle caress
The serenity of darkness
The comfort of silence
Trails of light bounce on the undulating water
The smooth current that never ceases
That washes away all traces of yesterday
My eyes close
The blackness envelops me
And the tide flows steadily
To the dawn of a new day
