A sky full of stars
Scuba is way overrated,
Said my heart, and
Though the experience was nice
It still left me wanting for more.
So me, alone, headed for
A night of kayaking at 12am,
With only a boat and a paddle,
Drifting through the eerily calm sea
Waves that seemingly carried you
Away from the shore.
Slowly the moon began to set,
Am telling you moonsets are the real deal,
Totally overwhelming sunsets or sunrises!
It slowly became foggy, through
The clouds in the horizon,
Casting a haunting looming shadow.
And then there was total darkness.
The sky was filled with stars!
Oh a comet! And the big bear!
Pointing out constellations were never this easy.
But a miracle still awaited.
The water around our boats began to glow,
Filled with a thousand fireflies under water,
The sands sparkled like thunderbolts.
And I laid back,
Exhausted, thrilled, and humbled,
For this made me believe in God once more!
