The crest of an ocean fades softly from blues,

submerging to darkness; the moon is her muse.

the sun hides her petals beneath lightweight air,

emerging, the moon throws a flickering glare.


and nobody knows of the treasures beneath -

past hesitant waves, which life-forms exist?

those velveteen secrets the moon oaths to keep,

in gratitude, the ocean sings her to sleep.

Impressive, excellent, thought-provoking.... You are, yourself, a raw, undiscovered, treasure.

I love your poem Alexandra. It reminds me of how we, as people, are indeed so small in comparison. Not in a negative way, however, in an awe inspiring way. Well done.

Thank you so much Penny! And I completely agree - what is a human in comparison to, say, the cosmos? No negative connotation indeed, an observation rather! After all, small details make up the grand world
