It Was On The Beach At Midnight!
Ah, I bet you thought this was going to be a naughty little rhyme about midnight on the beach and while I thought about that, but in the end I decided to write a romantic poem instead. I hope you like it.
This poem was originally written for GBE2 (Great Blogging Experience 2), the theme for the week being “Midnight”.
This poem was inspired by one Christmas Eve at Deerfield Beach in Florida, where my then girlfriend (now wife) walked along the beach after the sun had set and waited for the full moon to rise over the ocean.
It was a truly romantic moment and I highly recommend watching the sun/moon rise/set over the ocean. It’s also amazing just sitting on the beach in the middle of the night, listening to the waves breaking on the shore, or on a clear still night when the sea is like a mirror and the sky is clear, just watching the stars and their reflection in the ocean.
We were alone at midnight on the beach
The stars seemed almost in our reach
All was quiet except the sound
Of gentle waves washing up on the sand
The moon it was so bright and round
And lit both ocean and the ground
No man in the moon that night for me
But massive craters, so clear to see
It was truly romantic sitting on that beach
Holding hands, both quiet, no need for speech
Just enjoying the beauty of nature so grand
Soaking up love’s emotions right there on the sand
