Equatorial sunset

Awesome , surreal  equatorial sunset
Rippling waters double the impact above
Warmth of the glowing ethereal sky
Pacific ocean teaming with life thereof
Unseen until the arrival of sea birds
Hoping for plentiful food by chance
Punctuated by pelicans diving for food
Such accuracy given their clumsy stance

Scooping with that voluminous beak.
They get lucky and come back for more.
Cumbersome birds look too heavy to fly
Take a breather, feed young by the shore

As sunset gives way to cooler skies
Burnished colours now out of sight
Birdlife now quiet and time to rest
Night falls, skies dance with moonlight
