Blessed II

It’s a quarter to six
and the sun’s sinking low
But it’s so lovely here
that I don’t want to go
So I’ll sit here a while
as the shadows grow long
to watch the sun set
to the ebbing tide’s song

And as temperatures drop
and the day disappears
I’ll watch the gold grow
with the salt from my tears
And I’ll bid it farewell
as it fades to the west
from my vantage point here
on the beach where I’m blessed

Autumn Lovely

Raining now and cooler
Autumn’s finally gotten hold
But there’s still a little warmth out there
and it’s not yet all that cold

Some days when the sun comes out
the summer I still see
Although the falling leaves from
every shrub and bush and tree
tell me that it won’t be long
’til winter’s brittle time
When everyone will dress up warm
even when it’s fine

But I’m far from disappointed
as this change is fine with me
Especially with the lovely things
that every day I see

Autumnal sun

I went back to the beach
though the summer was done
But there was still a warmth
in the autumnal sun
The sea was the same
with the waves a deep blue
reflecting the sky
with its colour and hue

And the peace and the solitude
down there with the sun
was perfect I’d say
with my working day done
So I sat there a while
and reflected that this
is where my contentment
borders on bliss

Of Writers and Readers II

Part 2 of 3

Cathartic the writing
It’s something I do
for I love to find words
to share here with you
To metre and form
and syntax and rhyme
I’ll find ways to bring
them time after time

Bliss III

Watching as the sun goes down
on beach huts in a row
Catching the last rays
as in Western skies quite slow
it settles on another day
and evening time comes in
with golden glow to capture
the shadows lengthening

The breeze is gentle, fragrant
The sea, a flattened calm
Relaxing to the watching eye
just like a soothing balm
And my camera is ready
as I do not want to miss
this spectacle of nature
which to me is perfect bliss

With Grace

Mine’s the only beach hut open
yet the sun is shining bright
The beach is quite resplendent
but there’s no one else in sight

Just me, the sea and seagulls
down there on the shore
The gentle sound of gentle waves
How could I ask for more?

So I am truly grateful
for safe haven in this place
For with it comes a joie de vivre
given free with grace

Tri-yellow

Halcyon feel of yellow
my colour every time
Happiness exuded
for my soul to shine

Yellow irresistible
the colour of the sun
with zest that has no equal
enlightening everyone

Epitome of yellow
found ‘most everywhere
Captured and then treasured
a memory to share
