View From The Top

A serene surrounding falls upon sight.
The glistening water recedes to shore,
As the sun with its rays slowly ignites.
The harsh chill of darkness lingers no more.
I talk on the deck with family, friends
About privilege and adversity,
Matters, and issues, and themes that transcend.
This scene spurs endless creativity.
As the day concludes and the bright light dims,
Weary eyes still gaze at the new moon’s light.
These bodies move indoors with tired limbs.
But a new day will begin with delight.
So for the time being the day is done,
And with much sorrow the night has begun.
