Relaxing With A Poem

Updated on April 1, 2011
Relaxing is serious business in Florida.
Relaxing is serious business in Florida.

There is something about morning at the beach that cannot be experienced anywhere else. The light changing from dull morning grey to bright yellow sunshine. The sound of the water as it laps the sand. The feel of cool sand on your feet. The fresh smell of a breeze coming off the water. The sun rising large and golden over the water offering new possibilities, each morning as different as the people who rise to face the new day.

Put yourself in an Adirondack and relax with a poem. Smokey doesn't bite.



Each breath I take

Whispers your name

Like a silent sentry

Guarding my heart




I was lonely

Living alone

Until I met you

I didn’t know why

You fill me

Like no one ever has

You took over my heart

Like a vacant room

And made it yours


Mornings Are Special


I love you most in the morning

When your smile outshines the sun

And our hearts beat to the same music


Words Of Love


The words don’t seem to come

When I need them

When I am with you

They come in the quiet times

When I’m alone

I could shout them to the trees

And listen to them

Filter through the breeze

I could say them to the walls

And watch them bounce around

The empty room

Or I could write them down

The words that come from my heart

And give them to you

Hoping to see the love I feel

Reflected in your eyes

As you read them

      You are a very lucky woman. Morning at the beach is my favorite time of life.

      This is so beautiful poetry. Where I live, in the beautiful islands of the Pacific, I experience what you described in you beginning paragraph everyday.

      But of course the words wait, like morning glories when they have you to themselves, perhaps in the dawn to reveal themselves. Anything else would be to common everyday flower.

      ..yes I could sit back and relax on one of your nice deck chairs (I have a similar set-up on my deck which faces Lake Erie, in Ontario, Canada - and I live roughly 150 feet or so away from the greatest view of the lake itself with my two cats Mister Gabriel and Little Miss Tiffy in my cottage) and enjoy your poetry readings anyday ....and you have the poetic recipe down pat - always write from your heart and the mind will follow.

      So nice to meet with you and yes we are finally getting some Florida-like weather up here after a long and cold winter.

      I can't write poetry - well at least not well. But I do enjoy reading a very talented poet - you are certainly that. Thoroughly enjoyed your work here! Beautiful.

      I could relax with a poem. I love poetry and write some myself.
