At the Shore

photo prompt from Olive O'Brien's Creative Writing Ink

She sat waiting for me at the shore,
Clouds, sunlight, colors welcoming more.

Time passed, blending with eternity,
Nature, beauty, glorious was she.


It was here, for the first time I met,
Peace, serenity... from a sunset.

I really enjoyed the watery reflections of this and the previous post. Timely too, I've just dropped my OH off for a sailing trip today - it's a really big Spring tide today so crossing the bar at the estuary here should be a tad easier than it sometimes is!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Peace and serenity - beautiful expressions of waterside experience. Your previous post is much the same, contrasting the differences in the ocean's moods.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Comments are always fun to read, aren't they?
