with my feet still sat in wet sand
as the evening skies faded
like a fire in outer space
day turned slowly into night
and silver fish still circled
as a central point of
fire and ice
waited for the many moons
in the grecian sky to settle in their spots
like diamonds in the sky
Another tale poached from my repository at Allpoetry.com by me – Hope you Like it
The sun set on the sand , that summers night,
heading to brighten another place bright.
It slowly went behind the sea
and shimmered on waters, in front of me
The sky changed colour from blue to red,
and slowly the sun dipped its head.
And as the sun dipped behind the bay
stars of afar began to display.
It took a while to make a mark
the moon appearing in an arc.
A carpet of stars appeared from up high
twinkling as I passed them by
and water in the bay, reflected the light
of the new moon that lit up the night.
That is a fact. For until a timelord lands in Salford tomorrow morning and plonks his TARDIS on the front lawn, I will be another day older when the sun rises in the morning.
The planets and moons will still turn around our sun and the flora and fauna that live on the blue earth will still carry on in their various systems of life on this diverse planet.
People will go about their daily lives, and the Wildlife will still live on in the forests and lakes around us.
The tides will go in and out, crabs and other shellfish will pop on the shore to say hello…seagulls woodpigeons and geese will continue their never ending battle with day trippers to grab a fallen piece of a fish and chip supper…whilst cats and dogs look on in envy as they patrol their street in the towns.
And all the time the earth will keep spinning. As the day moves along clouds and skies will shift. There may be rain, there may be sunshine – get them together – you might see a rainbow if you a lucky enough.
Then as the sun changes colour slightly and veers down the horizon – heading for the other half of the world, out pops the moon , the planets and the stars
Living by the busiest road in Europe – I still hear the rumble of wheels on Tarmac, but the night skies offer a newer scene with the characters that live up in the northern sky
On a clear night you can see all the constellations with the naked eye in my hometown. Orion, the plough and all the zodiac animals all pop up to say hello – and whilst i’m watching the stars – someone on the other hemisphere of earth is waking up to a brand new day.
