Do we move to rest

silky like water that washes over our smooth thoughts

feeling the waves settle below our limbs

gently rocking us into the deepest night

cast ashore in forgotten dreams

that reignite when eyes grow heavy

do we drift on seamless seas

where day meets night

and thoughts become our reality.

Do we sit and watch the play of winds

whistling with the rhythm set by the tides

palette of colors in clouds burned by the sun

and cooled by the lavender hues

of nights coming advance

where I sit silently on the remains

of today and the grains of granite and shell fragments

bury my toes into wet castles created

by the barrier of leg as it tries in vain

to go around

yet becomes a part of stationary soul

that once lived

now smooth and light from years of turmoil

rolled about in a sea of anger and peace

and set down in the storm

a final place to rest

to become part of the beauty that is

a view of a lens.

  1. I always try to, just recently moved from NY to FLA and slowly getting back into my happy peaceful poetry moods. New sights and smells, sounds from country to not quite city….it’s all good and gives fodder to the imagination. Thank you again, following you too and looking forward to more reads 🙂

  2. Thank you so very much, and I’m glad you enjoyed it. It is my hope someday to publish it out in the real world via book form, to date, only had 9 poems in an anthology…but it was exciting and I look forward to the future and what it holds. Peace and love, Kim

  3. Thank you for reading and commenting, I’m glad you enjoyed it, it’s more of the norm of what I do, punctuated by dog posts occasionally too, gotta include them or they feel neglected….at least I think they do….peace and paw prints, Kim


  4. Thanks Tre, so glad you enjoyed it, mentally unwinding in my mind, drifting on beach thoughts as the storm rolls in, seems to be an afternoon thing here….keeps the pool full though😊🐬

  5. Where do I begin to tell how perfect I find this. It leaves me filled with hope, and a profound calmness floating on every word. You are a genius individual. I feel as if I just came home after an extremely long time lost in the city. Thank you so much for that.
