Swimming in Stars

Finally dusted off my old brain and put some words to paper.

Swimming in Stars

The myriad grains that glow with heat
The sand untouched by human feet
A long white stretch of island bliss
Where sloping shore and ocean kiss

The deep blue touch of night descends
To swathe the emerald trees
In silent cloaks of shadow stars
That fall into the sea

And leave them drifting on the waves
The luminescent glow
Of tiny lives left shimmering
The aurora of below

An indentation in the sand
That melds time ravished stone
With reams of curious glowing stars
And traps them all alone
