Coping With The Inevitable

The wind slipped leeward and behind the rocks.
All the gulls had gone to nest.
Even the ocean’s undulating tumult was subsiding.

And the next word I heard
Was no word at all:

The sunset swiftly gathered away the light
as if in fear of night’s latent fury.
A hush descended like an inverted emotion.

My heart plunged into the deep.
Moonlight played a sorrowful tune upon the water.
