Lullaby

As the sun sets across the bay, ocean and earth meet. Night beckons with a change of color painted across the twilight sky. The waves become a lazy lull, as the day birds huddle together to face the gentle breeze. The sand becomes a city of crustaceans foraging for their seaside fare. Seashells come alive as hermits test the comfort of their new homes. Creatures traverse the reef under the moonlight. Rock pools glow with luminescent life. A shooting star streaks across the sky.

Sunset paints the bay,
Lulling waves, night creatures play
Stars dance, end of day.
