Aspects of Gold III

Part 3 of 3

Of the sunsets I’ve seen
these aspects of gold
are treasures to cherish
and assets to hold
For each is a promise
to capture and seize
from the sun in the sky
like a kiss on the breeze

Sunrise embrace

Along the western esplanade
out across the sea
A golden winter promise
reached out its arms to me
So I stood a little while
awestruck and swathed in grace
as it wrapped its arms around me
in a sunrise warm embrace
Reaching from horizon
it touched me like a kiss
And in a lingering moment
I felt the pleasure of its bliss

Sunset kiss

Here are golden seas
As sun kisses water
and lovers unite

Kissed by moving water

Kissed by moving water
gentle, sometimes strong
shingle moves the shifting sand
to the ocean’s song

Storm and shout

The excitement of a thunderstorm
always brings a thrill
A flash of light and then the count
the waiting then until
A roll or clap of thunder
like a party in the sky
The same for when it’s miles away
or really close nearby

Mostly followed by a deluge
as raindrops kiss the ground
Accompanied by an echo
of the fading thunder sound
And then the flash of light again
as the stormfront closes in
Then I just have to shout out loud
with excitement in the din

X to mark the spot
affection symbolised as
love’s simplicity

Writing 101 day 8: Death to adverbs (“Sit in the sea”)

Think I’ll go sit in the sea

Let the waves wash over me

One of the best places to be

When I am feeling like this

Think I’ll go play in the sand

Build something with my own hand

A castle that’s splendid and grand

Where I will then live in bliss

Think I will let go and fly

Up with the seagulls on high

But then I will awake by and by

With a caress from the breeze and a kiss
