Privilege to share revisited

5 of 7 in the Jemverse ‘Beach Huts’ series

Another lovely end of day
in my favourite place
Sitting in the sunshine
with a big smile on my face

I’d take a little selfie
but I’m pretty sure that you
Would rather see some beach huts
from my favourite sea view

It really is a privilege
that’s not lost on me each day
Pausing as I cycle home
‘Cos it’s always on my way

I’ll watch the sea a little while
and write a poem in my book
Capturing words of what I see
as it’s always worth a look

Perhaps some day you’ll join me
I have some deckchairs spare
As it would be a pleasure
This view with you to share

A ray of sun captured (and revisited)

2 0f 7 in the Jemverse ‘Beach Huts’ series

I captured the sunset
at the beach hut today
Late in the evening
with a golden display

Reflective and gorgeous
the warmth of the sun
captured right here
as the day is all done

Bliss II

Across wet sand
as evening falls
the sea a whisper
silence calls
And here stand I
to witness this
exquisite moment
born of bliss

There was gold…

There was gold on the horizon
Out there across the sea
As we drove back into Shoreham
My soulmate, Sal and me
It filled the sky above us
With clouds tinged pink and bright
Heralding a promise
As we’re told to bring delight

There was gold on the horizon
As the sun bid us adieu
But it will be back tomorrow
When morning comes anew

Mother Nature’s Gifting

With yellow sky, the sunset
was something to behold
A panoramic spectacle
tinged with flecks of gold

Late October wonder
above the river there
Provided a rare moment
to simply stop and stare

For here was special beauty
unequivocal and free
Mother Nature’s gifting
through her generosity

A last word from the sun

To the west was the gold
over Brighton tonight
It was simply breathtaking
and a wonderful sight

The heavens were black
Cloud cover complete
except in the west where
the golden had seeped

And as the sun bade farewell
at the end of the day
It was clear to us all
it had plenty to say

Longshadow wave

The waning sun as evening falls
The sun sets in the West
Long shadows cast upon the beach
The light here at its best

One waves as one takes photographs
looking out to sea
Both happy and contented here
where they so love to be
