I will inform you once the shells are spoor. When they're timorous around the seashore, Just as mushrooms will grow around a grave, If they shine like slight candles in a cave. So, you and I will devour the beach dunes. While a pearly moon sails the ocean tunes, Listening to the meek growl of the waves, Because of the eyesore, the seagull craves. Leave the prospects of the moody era, To the pinnacle of warm chimera, Entirely all the measures we will climb, Unwinding vexes will raddle each rhyme. When the billow came to express goodbye, Moon dimly veiled as if it were a sigh, If love isn't exciting and no tears fell, The ripple then needed to say farewell. I will contact you when the seashells bloom, While they dance with brittle light at my tomb, We will play the doom game in parody, I will call you when the shells grow quickly. My deprived brain couldn't accept a farewell, I wrote the last and final verse as well, Like birds, you'd return to the nest at dusk, Retrieve my typed quill that I'd drop when busk.

I can only utter a 'Wow'! This is poetry of a high rank.... ! The images are stupendous creating mixed feelings of woe, pain of farewell and joy of romance ! Imagine the time 'when seashells bloom' 'to play the doom game'....! Stark and cutting

Well rhymed Quatrain, Lasaad. Good entry for the contest. There's so much involved in a fairwell, many different levels to deal with. Have a great week my friend! Bill

An eloquent flowing quatrain, soft and reminiscent; where one feels a sense of déjà vu.

The last waltz resonates in final thoughts conveyed through this impressive creation, Lasaad. Amazing how you can easily write syllable constrained long poems with ease. Best to you.
