• Beach Bonfire

    by Skyler Lewis

    I watched the tantalizing flames
    shoot up sparks in the cool night sky
    as fiery tongues lick the sides of the pine.

    I watched the sun depart its post
    splash celestial paint across the clouds,
    the sea its final nighttime shroud.

    I watched the dune grass sway in time
    with wind’s rhythm and whispered rhyme.

    I watched the beach pass into night
    the crowds departing with the light.
    I felt the world spin fast around
    this sand so still, without a sound.
