Standing by the Ocean

It's a quiet night
Warm, without a breeze
Stars descend slowly
Into the calm sea

    Lovely images Jim.Thanks for your blog comments.Here is one of my quintiles We had/ met and conversed,/ a rapport on first sight-/ a chance meeting to a life's time/ delight/ that/ Summer/ evening silken,/ encounter of/ initiations together/ explored/ as/ Desire/ welled within-/ words became a promise/ so sublime,to love now and for/ all time. A quintile is a poem of linked American cinquains Rgds Brian

    Love the serenity this write evokes, Jim. There's no place I feel more introspective than at sea. Great quatrain! Love, Carolyn

    Hey Jim; I can see myself looking out over the ocean on a calm evening with gentle, white-capped waves lapping at the shore, and Orion slipping behind the invisible line of the horizon. Very pleasant, indeed... ~<><
