I came down to the water
with the wave worshippers
sun worshippers
and watched the sun set
across the heaving sea
let its cold wash over me
breathed deeply
until my mind cooled;
together, we, strangers
grew drunk on the magic
bowed to the power of nature
its swirling poetry
then withdrew, one by one,
into the verdure of the hills.

    • Thanks, Thom. I really wasn’t sure about verdure. It came to mind and I wanted to use it but was worried it might stick out. Thanks for letting me know it worked for you.
