The Music

I waited
patiently on the shore
for the music of the sunset
a song of ocean...and sky

It started
simply, just a note
a monotone of pale blue
a soft chiming of wispy white

I watched
silently as clouds
played the melody in pink
adagio in a violet sky

It played
softly in my mind
a cacaphony of color
a symphony of light

I listened
carefully to the sea
the yearning, somber harmony
the echoes of the deep

It finished
melting into peace
the sun's final crescendo
enveloped by the sea.

Caren E. Salas
