This was inspired by flying in a small plane over a bay near the Pacific Ocean. It was night and the crescent moon was reflecting on the water. It was very peaceful.

Night Watch

The Crescent Moon shines
     on the dark sea
 In tranquility.

Moon light shimmers as the night waves break
    On a silent lake.

The Moon is so still
    as creatures sleep
Within the deep.

The Moon promises soon 
that night will be done --
 The Sun will come.

 How quiet is the night -- moon lit night
      When all seems right!

A beautiful nature write
love the still of the night
As you try to figure out
the sounds comming from the unknown
Love & peace be with you
