Ships sailed in the distance
Over the apparently calm surface of the ocean
As we sat on the beach watching them.
To the pinkish blue cotton candy sky
Telling us tales of the day.
We hardly exchanged a word.
The silence was enough.
It was too powerful.
We gave in to its melody to control us
And the moment.
Occasionally I threw a bite of sandwich to the seagulls.
I know our souls must have been the color of the ocean
For we were just
As serene and sublime
With the silence making poetry between us.
We were lost in an eternity of blissful silence.
I could not have wished
For anything else but for this
To last forever.
Or maybe it was forever.
