A Night at the Beach
The evening sun has set, a huge orange-red ball, sinking into the depths, leaving the sky in shades of rose, purple, and gray. Silhouettes of palm trees, like silent sentries line the passage to the beach. After a respectful transition, a full moon, like a large golden globe, lights a silvery, shimmering path across the bay to a quiet shore. The walkway is lined with hibiscus and a soft gulf breeze lifts the scent of jasmine that is hidden in the shadows of the palms. Myriad stars, are scattered like diamond dust across the vaults of the velvety blue-black carpet that is the sky tonight. The only sounds are the muted rustle of palm fronds caressing each other in the playful breeze and the shushing of the tide as it reaches in to wash the shore and then retreats again.
Close you eyes….
Are you there yet?

I am going to be so envious if this what you see outside your window….
beautiful and I think I will use this as intent to dream tonight
It’s what I used to see when we lived in Florida, and the memories of it haunt me. I can still feel the breeze
and smell the jasmine….
I walked in my greenhouse today and the jasmine just about knocked me over…my hibiscus is blooming despite the heat,
I understand the haunting memories….so plant some more… even if its in contaners on a porch…memories are important….

this was beautiful… a great way to to set intentions before one goes to sleep….I will do this …
