Morning on the Beach

Source

The night flew away like a bird in flight

There is a seamless quality to the day

(as if my cares too, quietly flew away)

The writer knits the string that holds the day

Each stitch cast on lightly, child's play!

Hello snakeslane. What a refreshing poem from youth. You are a multitalented artist.

mckbbks you are fast! The poem (if I may call it that) was written a couple of months ago. The painting though is vintage (me too) Thank you very much.

I just happen to be sitting here when the notice arrived. Again both the poem and the watercolor are so rich.

Thank you Jamie, there was a Sonnet in the making, but quite honestly I haven't got there. You are very kind.

There is lightness in touch and words in both the poem and watercolor…yet so profound in meaning and depth. Beautifully done. :-)

It might be about child's play, but your poem is far from that, it's deep and mature. Love the painting, too.
