Subliminally Thoughtless Poetry Challenge

Poem Written

Poem Title "Sea Shells" created

by Vellur

Sea Shells

indigo grins of skyline peer on horizons

that electrify the waves of soothing emotions

to shine glistening waters to the heavens as

light breeze enters charismatic tranquility

of seascape serenity in milky sands

that shimmer rhythmic light of hypnotic

enlighten essence in the paradise

of whimsical vibrant moments

to dazzle into majestic shells

fluttering on gentle cloudlike tides

arriving in ravishing elegant gifts

lining along frosted dreamy shores

      in sea shells

      let it flow out to sea


      Heavy with sorrows

      they drown

      into the depth of sea


      One day

      it will be released

      of all sorrows


      And float

      to meet the sand

      a cycle of collecting, releasing...

      I love the sea. I met the sea for the first time when I was 8 years old, and it caused a tremendous impression on me to see the immensity of the sea for the first time. Your poem transported me back to those extraordinary moments of my life. Voted up! and awesome!

      cruelkindness: The title is perfect. Voted up and beautiful. I could feel it all. Love the phrase, "to dazzle into majestic shells fluttering on gentle cloudlike tides..." I NEVER would have thought of that tremendous description. Thank you! What a great writer you are! Blessings, Sparklea :)

      The imagery here is gentle and yeah, utterly dreamy. Wielding a powerful lens as well as an abstract mind -extraordinary, cruelkindness!

      "enlighten essence in the paradise

      of whimsical vibrant moments

      to dazzle into majestic shells..."

      Surreal! Loved this.

      I agree with tobusiness, this poems brings memories of beaches I have loved and beaches I have yet to love. By the way what is the "Subliminally Thoughtless Poetry Challenge" sounds interesting. Jamie

      Felt wonderful, calm, wind, and the beach. It is amazing that poetry can put feelings into people. Many poets can't do that.
