Waikiki Moon

One night we went surfing under the bright, full moon. The blaring lights from the beach hotels helped illuminate the night sky. The sea stayed dark and calm, with gentle 2-3 foot sets rolling in. It was just us and the ocean out there; deep, sparkling, and beautiful. I waited a long time for the perfect wave. When it finally came I couldn't tell when the crest would break, as dark clouds covered the sky, casting a shadow over the water. The gray night sky and the gray ocean suddenly blended into one, a sudden movement of synchronistic perfection. I rose to my feet at just the right moment, gliding across the face of the wave, high on adrenaline and glory, just me and the Waikiki moon.
