HARMONY OF THE SENSES

Source:

 

The rustle of the grass

as I make my way past.

The hard waves against the shore

echo memories and more.

The soft feel of the white sand

as I touch toes to the land.

The cries of the seagulls

as they dip to check holes.

A harmony of the senses.

A feast to cover all tenses.

Past, present, future converge

to bring pleasure to this splurge.

TICKLE MY TOES

 

 

 

TICKLE MY TOES

 

They tickle my toes.

They line up in rows.

Oh! What can they be?

A starfish or three?

The water has a pink shine.

Too many colors to rhyme.

Red for my long, long hair.

Orange fish who swim near.

Yellow for the rays of the sun.

Blue for the water that’s so fun.

I can stay here the whole day.

The seagulls have come to play.

The birds circle around me.

Yes! It’s the best place to be.

A WINDOW

 

 

A window to the world.

A window to beauty.

To snow-capped mountains.

To swan-filled lakes.

To pounding waves of the ocean.

To fields of flowers.

To adventure.

To romance.

Open the window.

Open your mind

to the possibilities.

Wake up your senses.

Can you see the rocks

along the shore?

Can you feel the ocean breeze?

Can you smell the flowers?

Can you feel the hot sun

on your face?

Can you hear the seagulls’ cries?

Can you taste the salty air?

I can.

LET’S TAKE A WALK

Let’s take a walk.

Down the path

covered in flowers.

Down the stairs

to the beach.

Can you feel the ocean breeze?

Can you smell the flowers?

The sun rides high in the sky.

My mood is riding as high.

Let’s not stop.

Let’s keep walking.

Fisherman are bringing in their catch.

Seagulls circle around them.

Searching for any scraps of fish.

Can you smell the fish?

A unique aroma.

Let’s sit down and

watch the waves,

lapping at the shore.

At this moment,

life feels perfect.

Life is perfect.

TO BE ALONE

At times we want to be alone.

We search for dark corners to hide.

A place to escape from others.

To escape from our problems.

To escape from mindless chatter.

But then you might find yourself

all alone on a beach.

With seagulls as your only company.

Birds squawking at you for

invading their territory.

Man doesn’t belong alone.

roadlessco:Life could be simple.

We don’t need all the fancy

trappings that come with our

hectic lives.

Imagine living by the ocean

with endless views of the sky and water.

A boat to take us where we need to go.

The cry of the seagull ringing in our ears.

No big houses with empty rooms

or over-sized electronic devices.

Peace and quiet will soothe our nerves.

We would be able to write and create

to our heart’s desire.

We would feel fulfilled.

No worries about keeping up with the neighbors

for our neighbors will have what we have:

A comfortable home with free time to

enjoy life for the first time.
