breaks the nights’ deep silence.
My loved ones far away
can not know my loneliness.
Open windows beg for companionship,
the cold wind my only visitor.
The night has settled over Charleston, our beautiful city by the sea, and the moon is standing high in the sky illuminating the marsh land. The noise of the day has wound down, and it seems that the ocean has come alive with jumping fish and dolphins emerging from the deep, dark water for a breath of air. But the ocean is always alive. We just don’t notice it until it gets real quiet.
