26. Night Creatures
Acrylic on canvas
36 x 18 ins
'Under a wide night creatures gather.
Their toes in the sand; together they build fire,
drink beer, laugh.
The moon above,
the tide approaches.
Familiar faces glow in the dark,
Soon the flames will disappear,
The creatures will leave when they run out of beer,
But they'll be back in a couple of weeks
To spend more time together, just wait and see.'
