Her Secret Place…

Her Secret Place…

Beneath the silvery moon sky
She kisses all her cares goodbye

Barefoot and free
She races down to the sea

In the soft glow of the night
She dances in pure delight

Her emotions are heightened
Yet she is not frightened

The breezy ocean air
Runs fingers through her hair

The cool salty mist
Gives a soft gentle kiss

She embraces the touch
From this place she loves so much

She is pleased by her endeavor
But knows she cannot stay forever

Her heart is heavy and torn
Creases of it now aged and worn

She reaches down underneath the sand
Capturing the tiny pieces in the palm of her hand

Gently blowing the colored crystals away
She promises to come back another day

  5. Thank you Carl… The ocean is my favorite place to be in all the world. When I moved to Wisconsin I didn’t realize what I was giving up.

  6. Thank you Dorinda! The ocean is calling my name as I sit with 13 inches of snow right outside my window. Is it spring yet?

  11. I guess we all just have to think warm thoughts for the next four months, until it finally starts to warm up again. We need a good fire poem… may I request one from you? 😉
