How the Sea Goes to Sleep

written by: Kara Jackman



The eye is drawn to the horizon’s rainbow.
Purple, violet, light orange
Sandwiched between two true blues,

the sky and the ocean.

Like a pot of water simmering on the stove,
The ocean fights to comfort itself.
Whitecaps lick the tops of the jetty’s rocks,
Softening their jagged edges.
Waves meet the shore,
Only to be bounced back by the sea wall.

The sunlight wanes.
This is the way the sea goes to sleep.
