Searching for Gold

distant clouds of gray -- smooth brush strokes illuminate effervescent waves golden sands reflect sparkling shades of jewel-kissed sky -- high tide sprays solar flares old woman stands hunched upon the drifting shoreline -- gray eyes search the sun

    I just love the "sparkling shades of jewel-kissed sky" line, it is so descriptive you couldn't miss the image it creates in your mind! Your whole poem is so grandiose, I really enjoyed the peacefulness of the whole piece! Great Work!!
