Night's Wave

by Momentary Relapse   Jan 27, 2006

A wave comes crashing to the shore
Spreading over the glittering sand
Hanging in the horizon gleaming red
Is the sun dying as night comes
Every breath slips into darkness
Retreating back into the night sky
Understanding life returns with the wave
As it ends once more with the day
A gentle breeze smothers the dark
The waves moving away from the land
Slipping back into the desolate calm
Where the ocean forever reigns

    I really enjoyed this poem. I love the imagery in nature poems, you did an excelent job in it. I liked your description in this, "glitering sand" creates this really cool imagery of a ceach and the glittering is glass and stuff like that. I liked how you described the sun as dying, this is a different way to describe how night is coming and the sun is setting. You really captured that beautiful image of the sun setting. An excellent job. To impr9ove i suggest you useo unctuation. Other then that a great read! Keep writing! xx
