Dawn and the Sea #poetry


tidal foam

my eyes long to caress you smooth as silk

your bronze glow accentuated by dawn

my fingers can only momentary trace a message

watery “I love yous” fade away

as the sea draws lacy covers back

remnant of a long night blurrs

gold red rays warm your skin

 long legged birds celebrate your awakening

I a mere voyeur watch…

the morning rises from slumber

 meeting the sea’s welcome embrace

I inhale the beauty of a new day

sandpiper dawn

This week’s prompt at Poet’s United Midweek Motif is Beauty. Where in the world do you see beauty?

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are working with a team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. I want to inhale a bit – Ha. I just got back from Miami and spent some time on the beach. The water temperature was 87. Amazing. You could just walk right in. I did get bit by some rather larger fish that came through in a school. Ha. Totally freaked out the rest of those on the beach, and I did not get it as bad as this other lady that came up rather bloody. I like the intimacy you have with the morning, with the beach. I longingly look forward to returning.

  2. I really like watching the morning rise from its slumber. Those early morning rays ARE the most beautiful. And there is nothing like inhaling its beauty! Very nicely written, Leslie.
