Endless blues

To feel the witness marks of endless blue

Silk falls calm on waves as the sky touches

That which only it sees

Cast on endless seas that reach out

Touching softly the tender spaces

Where life clings in solitude

Reeling in memories like silver trinket fish

Flopping about at the bottom

Of life’s boat that drifts

Aimlessly into the mist.

Froth as sweet as a shake mixed

By the hands of the universe,

Stirred and blended into intoxicating thickness

Treasures unearthed beneath 

As the tide pulls out into the deeper darker blue

Of days that move along on the surface

Yet below there waits a world of visions,

Of colored stars and rainbow fins

 where the air leaves us helpless

To stay for very long,

And we bob along like sea birds

Riding waves like errant surfer boys

Skipping school and finding calm

And peace in hanging on

riding the swell into home.

Can’t help you with the transporter….although I know they have planes,trains and automobiles😊 loving it here, slowly getting in my groove and the ocean is divine….enjoying the warmth and the humidity is actually lessening my arthritic tendencies now too which I see as a divine bonus😊 thanks Elouise…..you can always come visit too you know😊
    Peace and love always,

  2. Dear Kim, I just caught up a bit and am almost breathless at the creativity your new surroundings are giving you. The photos remind me of so many things I miss by living in the Northeast. I don’t mind missing the heat and humidity of the South. But the slower pace, gorgeous water, slow waves and sand? ….A writer’s paradise! All I need is a Star Trek transporter! 🙂

  3. Happy beach moods….things I think of as I’m on the floor bleaching and baking soda scouring the grout😊 easy to see myself in other places besides cleaning, right? It always works, makes it go quicker…..I wonder if that’s how Cinderella got her start?
