Sand and Sea | Two Poems

Easy Chair



Source


Perched in a secluded,

Soft and sand easy chair

High on the cliff;




Regarding seabirds eye to eye

As they soar and skim

On magical breezes--




Transfixed by the folding,

Shifting rainbow sky

Of sunset dreams,




I wrap my cares and woes

In a layer of dreamy nonchalance

And toss them to the swallowing sea.




Then, exulting in the light and color,

I raise my camera, steady, aim

And shoot the wind.

Sunset Dreams



Source



Staring out to sea,

I am held willing hostage



By the coruscations of

Kaliedescopic clouds

And setting sun.




Night gathers its cloak

Around the deepening dusk.




I return refreshed; yet somehow,

Supremely sedated.

@ bravewarrior - Aww, shucks, Shauna ;) Thank you so much. I'm glad you are enjoying my old works. I don't write poetry much anymore; it feels as if my muse died along with my mother. We were each others' best audiences. ;)

@ Jodah - LOL No worries. I'm pleased you enjoyed these snippets so much. Thank you.
