"A child miseducated is a child lost." -JFK

Sunlight loses meaning, wasted on wheat fields, concrete,
Its radiance disintegrates into the dull landscape below.
Water, hindered by mud, mussels, the unknown,
Gives darkness a new meaning, a new loneliness.
But together, sunlight and water form the ultimate team.
Underneath, rays turn dark and fright to beauty and light.
Above, golden beams find a mirror in the choppy yet reflective seas.
As we watch the sun rise above Connecticut, the Sound, our cove,
We witness this combo of mesmerizing ambiguity and luminous integrity.
Water brings nostalgia, and the sun gives us hope with each ray,
But there’s nothing like both, especially when we see them together
Every single day.

The author's comments:

My town, Norwalk, CT, is a place that runs on the nearby Long Island Sound. Spending days on kayaks, afternoons sitting on rocks with fishing rods, and nights listening to the waves at the marina have made me appreciate my ocean environment. Poetry is my form of expression: "Sun and the Sound" details the powerful combination of sunlight and water in the form of the ocean.
