Orange heat shimmers a vision
of dusty dissolution.
Sun dips absolute
into soothing salty water
and bathes away the swelter of the day.
Breezy breath, ushering delicately,
preludes a moonlit serenade.
As gold fades, carbon soots the sky black.
Mother morphs another miracle
and in the wink of an eye
a choir of diamond stars twinkle into existence.
In the spotlight of the moonbeam
the sandman takes centre stage
and the dream begins.
