At the Beach

The walls
Bursting with flowers
The rocks
Dancing like dots
Along the dunes
The pale sky
Suffused
With understatement
And the sea
Still as sand
As long forgotten dreams
Appear anew
Heaving and anguished
On the smooth shore

  1. I really loved this. And with this one, I admit, I’m envious. Your grasp of Nature in this poem is like a masterclass. My Nature themed poems should be half so good! It’s an inspiring poem in what it portrays, but also it inspires the writer in me because when I look at the less is more mechanics of what you did with the poem, it makes me want to go revise some old poems that didn’t quite work. The flow of the poem is flawless, like the water and the wind. Keep them coming John.
