Peder Severin Krøyer [Public domain] “Summer Evening at Skagen beach, the artist and his wife”

Light sings over the sea

as the moon rises,

a silver coin floating in a purple sky

full of secrets,

she sails into the morning




joy, we wake,

open the window to if,

listening for that sea song

that lingers like a laugh

in the dark.


Another collaborative puente from the Oracle.  The first line came from one set of tiles, and the rest came from another set. I remembered this painting after I wrote the poem (in case anyone is wondering). 😉
