The Cottage By The Sea, Short Story, Fiction And Poetry
A place to call home!
A New Chapter
The car moved slowly down the country road and made it's way through the green oak clad roads, to the open fields beyond.
This was the time to move away, she thought, move away to somewhere new where she could start a new life afresh, far from the abuse and antagonism.
Her aunt had invited her to her home in a little sea side town about hundred miles away. Aunt Annie was always welcoming her in, with open arms and an open heart.
A Breath Of Fresh Air
She needed the sea air and some good walks along the cliffs, to bring some perspective and sanity into her life again.
Soon the white cliffs appeared at the end of a long stretch of road and the breeze from the sea wafted in her open window, beckoning her to come back, to where she belonged.
She spent many a holiday here at Annersea and the friendly people always treated her, like a long lost friend.
Love And Laughter
Aunt Annie helped her in with much laughter and joy and she collapsed into the lovely floral settee and it felt like she had come home.
Tea and chocolate cake with a dollop of cream and strawberry jam were placed on the little tea table in front of her.
She chatted and watched the sun go down on the horizon and the cry of the seagulls faded as the mist and night air, covered the cliffs.
A good night's rest and a change in her path and events, had led her back to the haven, the cottage by the sea.
The summer comes as a fresh warm wind
It blows my hair and frown away
And brings to me a joyful day
When times are cold and dreams lie frozen in the ice
The summer breeze lifts my heart
And wafts past in colours and spice
We dare to dream of far off shores
Sand swept beaches
And vistas galore
Where we dance on the light
And fly with abandon
Where the eagles soar on wings of flight
Embrace your dreams
And unlock your wings
Find the summer wind and reach for your own dreams and ideals...soar little eagle..soar!

Sunset Over The Sea
The summer rays dance on the sand where
lovers walk hand in hand.
Somewhere a sea bird cries
High overhead agaist the blue skies
Waves rush on to the shore
The lovers footprints are no more
Only the the sigh of the waves a breaking
once more on the ocean floor
Take note of your life and appreciate all the minutes that add up to the hours. You never know when your footprints on this sandy life's beach will be no more.
