Distant Shore (poem)

Updated on July 4, 2015

Upon a distant shore it came to rest

This precious gift which washed up from the sea

Its special glow had withstood peril’s test

So here it rests awaiting destiny

-

There in the sun its light did sparkle so

Now surely it would catch a passing eye

And when it did such beauty it would show

With wonders one could fashion their dreams by

-

So lonely were the moons that passed its way

And downcast eyes which had no need of light

Its tides of hope were waning day by day

Its memories were fading from its sight

-

Upon a distant shore the sea had crossed

She searches for something that she had lost

      That one was beautiful and stunning Martin. I love watching the sea at sunset. The music went perfect with it. I voted up, shared and pinned it.
