A Poem in the Sand

A Poem in the Sand 

 

 

 Cool ripples of water caress her toes

Sand percolates between

Sunshine and ocean dance playfully

Transcendent on serene

 

On gentle breeze, seagulls sashay and coast

Seeking a succulent feast

Calling loudly to each other

Then piercing cerulean sea

Caring

Caring Hands 

 

 

To care

Brings warmth and strength

As a winter’s eve fire

Soothes and braces a fading soul

With life

An Aussie Icon

 

Aussie Meat Pie 

 

Aussies love their tucker.

 

There are many iconic Aussie foods.  There are the yummy sweet treats like Tim Tams, pavlova, lamingtons, Cherry Ripes, Fairy Bread, Jaffas, Violet Crumbles and Milo.  Then there are the not so sweet "treats" like Vegemite,Read full post »

Illuminate life’s path with faith

And hope

Tended with an innocent love

Brings joy

Only

Cool winds embrace

The solitary soul

Wading through a rippled ocean

Alone

Into the Dark

This is one of my earlier poems.  It carries quite a bit of relevancy for me at the moment.

 

Troubled, bitter and dishevelled

          Out into the night he steps

Which way to turn he cannot fathom

My Kindred Spirit, My Soul Mate

 

 

‘Tis you, my love, who are my fate

You fill my heart and make me smile

My kindred spirit, my soul mate

 

Of you I dream, For you I wait

Each moment with you, so worthwhile

‘Tis you, my love, who are my fate

East of Home

 The wonderfully warm winter weather gracing the east coast of Australia in recent weeks has been willing me to get out and enjoy the natural beauty of my local surroundings. 

So a Sunday or two ago, I got up bright and early, and made the short forty minute journey from my homeRead full post »

Luscious cool shelter

Shrill calls of whipbirds echo

Em'rald fans quiver

Tears of the tempest gather

Falling with unending life

Isolation

Isolation 

 

 

Alone

With thoughts unkind

Despair invades her mind

Echoing cold isolation

Forlorn

A Summer’s Day

 

Sunshine

Beckons me out

To play and live life full

The sea is where I go to dance

And feast

 

Autumnal Fall

 

The leaves

Twist gold and red

And drift like butterflies

To earth, settling on crisp, cooled ground

A shawl

The Moment

 

Kissing silhouette  

 

Anticipation

A gentle touch

A lingering kiss

Warm breath on skin

 

Growing excitement

Eager lips

An intimate caress

Acquiescence

 

Exhilaration

Heightened desire

Cloud nine

Seventh heaven

 

An arched back

A gasp

Pounding hearts

Sweaty bodies

As seems to have been the case each Sunday morning for many weeks now, the sun shone brightly through my bedroom windows … beckoning me to get up, to stop whiling away my time, and to enjoy the day ... to make the most of it!

In previous weeks, I’ve refusedRead full post »

By Crescent Moon

 

Crescent Moon and Stars - http://www.nunukphotos.com/a-crescent-moon-photos.html 

 

On silver star a gleam

Reflecting purest love

And by crescent moon I dream

 

His love a radiant beam

Glowing warmth from above

On silver star a gleam

 

Love flitters so supreme

On the wings of a dove

And by crescent moon I dream

My little corner of Australia

I've been a tad bit busy in recent weeks and so have had little time here on OS.  Well, at least I haven't been here as much as I would have liked! 

I tried to stay in touch with as many of you as I could but I do know I will have… Read full post »

I Am Here

 

Whenever you need to talk

And confide in me your woes

Or perhaps to take a walk

And ponder the highs and lows

 

                 …. I am here

 

If you need a helping hand

A shoulder on which to cryRead full post »

TORN

Torn between our distant shores

Separated by the miles

Words have drawn us together

And we seal them with our smiles

 

Torn between a life we have

And the one we someday might

Torn between what may be wrong

But what too could be so right

 In responding to the Sonnet Smackdown, I do hope you will forgive me if I repost one from not too long back.

Firstly, a little information about the Petrarchan or Italian Sonnet ... 

The oldest form of the sonnet is the Italian or Petrarchan Sonnet (named for its greatest prRead full post »

ECSTASY

A sprinkle of tiny freckles

          Adorn her pretty face

Her golden hair a curly frame

          His fingers long to trace

 

Contentment and pure joy she brings
