THE BIG BLUE

Mid-summer breezes bellow a 
Whistling tune,
Echoing soft melodies freedom's,
 Playful abandonment.
Against sandy shores waves gently,
 Splashing,
Multicolored shells mixing amongst,
 Pebbles,
 Rolling'n'turning hear the everlasting,
 Hush.   
Gliding torrents dive through rough,
 Surf,
Greedily seagulls screeching, 
Screaming who was here first.
Snappy crabs running to and fro, 
Tasty morsels at a fleeing feast.
Then suddenly captured, dragged by, 
Watery under toes.
Rippling calmness returns at last, 
Basking in days repast.
Day break's glow warms mans soul, 
And awakens his heart.
Yet nay know mortal's eye can deny,
Such beauty that lies before him.
Tranquility's slumber lie thee down,
Gently rock me by the sounds of 
The sounding sea.
Release thus abandonment’s spirit,
Foam unto spray washes all my, 
Troubles away.
Here at night's curtain fall,
While stars above shimmer 
And shine.
Another morning sunrise appears,
But quietly I know longer remain.
Silence can become a bitter sweet,
 Thing,
Just once more to hear distant 
Loons calling sorrows cry,
But nothing except silences, 
Response, 
Answers to me in still calm.

    Hi Cheryl, you are on a winner immediately with me as far as this piece goes. I Love being by the water, whether it be a spring, a river, an ocean, I don't care as long as it is water. It has such a calming effect on me, whether stormy or calm. Reading this piece fills me with such a gentle peace inside, it truly calms any inner turmoil. You paint your canvas with such living imagery. Your pictures come to life so easily before my eyes. A complete peace Cheryl. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    the moody ocean captured so well I can taste the salt.

    I love the images your words allowed me to see Cheryl. I agree with Debra. Poetry is also about presentation, as is any novel, writings etc. Once you have posted onto the Soup's template, it may be worth looking over said piece and seeing if it's layout is to your liking. Other than my words again, you certainly know how to allow words to paint, James :)

    You have a talent for word usage and the blending words well to show a picture or emotion...you took me there. Question: Is there a reason your lines are so short, when some can be longer? Perhaps writing on a phone instead of a computer??

    Very interesting, it takes me away to the sea, enjoyed your verse tonight xxx
