When reaching the beach at night, each star above will teach our light,

That crushed rocks are where the waters meet,

…rushing ashore as our feet get wet then sink.

So I often look up at the sky at night to view the stars. Understanding not much has changed in the millions of years they’ve shined, it amazes me how we see the same stars and constellations that people named thousands of years ago.

Whether it be science or history that explains the stars,

It won’t matter if the most colorful one be Mars.

Some of the lights we see up there died several millenniums ago.

Yet today, it’s a star as bright like a dead generation we oath…

The moment you hit the sand, the taste of vacation is felt on your feet. Walking into the ocean, feeling cooler than the hot Sun and moist air in motion, the touch of cold ocean water is inviting, because the Sun, heat, and sweat is what you could be fighting…

Reaching the beach where the stars teach;

A fire of abundance is what the Sun seeks.

Looking directly at it is painfully not fun.

Looking directly at a star, is boring for those far from one.

As night skies remind us we aren’t the brightest, we’re also made aware that stars don’t shine on each other. But when they do, it’s a glaring space we must not utter…

Sunlight at the equator hits different in February.

It helps our star of Earth shine better in blue.

Imagine if there were others viewing from afar;

thinking wow, what a beautiful shining hue of a star.

Because a star’s light is nothing to view.

Like breathing, it’s the life we’re due..

A fool doesn’t look at the Sun for fun. Because a fool will likely compare himself and try to explain the fires it run..

Stars don’t shine on each other in view,

Night time beaches are their humbling stage for you.

What they’re doing? Each has no clue.

Altogether, how clever…

Each shines like you.
