By The Shore

I know not
how many sat by this shore.
I can't imagine
what they heard, saw, inhaled
laughter, sunset, sea shells; and
was it salt or sugar for them.

I wonder
if they let their spirit
ebb and flow,
or if they drowned it
in turbulent waves.
May be some absently drew
a ship without sails
to feel the thrill of a voyage,
or some let the waves
play with their toes
and slip away.

I keep returning
to these haunting shores,
where I find my true self
writing short stories and poems
feeling the wind on my face
dedicating them
to the past, present and setting sun
knowing it will rise again.

excellent imagery

we all love to sit by the shores
more when one is singularly alone
and
see the vast ocean quivering
like do thee
awaiting the new
promised surfee

This was gorgeously written. I felt intermittently happy, haunted, hopeful and reminiscent. Thanks again on a whole new level.

Blessed Be

"If my poetry aims to achieve anything, it's to deliver people
from the limited ways in which they see and feel." -Jim Morrison

for reading...i truly wish it helps the reader to feel happy, hopeful and reminiscent and make them believe that it can happen again for them....and for them to believe that good things can happen again. for them...life is of immense possibilities...it's all about keeping the spirit alive..isn't it?

believe in the sun will rise again...
