Surfer's poem: The Sun and the Moon

The sun rose beyond the horizon, above the ocean's call, with the silky fading gold upon itself, writes Tanieka Kargwal.

The sun rose beyond the horizon
Above the ocean's call,
With the silky fading gold upon itself,
The sunbeams start to fall.

An emerald beauty
Embedded in a golden frame,
Pinned upon the shimmering blue wall,
It was lonely and deserted until the shadows came.

The sun lit moon in the velvety night sky,
Floated in the wavy clouds,
No more was the ocean blue,
It was just a jet-black shimmering people in a crowd.
