Not the Answer

Sunset on Egg Harbor Bay

A reflection from Long Beach Island, inspired by the sun setting over Little Egg Harbor Bay.

I sought some answers from the dusk
As the bay consumed our light.
A brilliant glow, umber and tusk
Concealed them from my sight.

And as the burst of spectral rays
Ripped through the lazy clouds
I understood in errant ways
The questions were my shroud.
