Sky Secrets

The sky split
And spilt
All the secret flavors
It had been holding
Streams of peach, tangerine
Across the hori(sun)
Then released a golden glowing drop
Of honey
That splashed into the sea
Leaving a rosy sky
Lavender clouds
And the taste of delight
On our tongues

Hope y'all aren't tired of sunsets ;-)--this was another prompt from the beach inspired month at Poetic Bloomings to write about a sunset.  Also shared with OLN at where the sun never sets ...both photos are by yours truly, feel free to share

The Spaces Inbetween

Paint me a mosaic
Shadowed wavelets in a row
In the spaces inbetween
The sun's afterglow
Make it molten flow-
Copper, silver sheet
Then slip it here
Inside my heart
Where it can softly

This is offered for Poets United Poetry Pantry where I swim with and am inspired by my fellow poets, and Poetic Bloomings prompt of "waves" a month of beach related poems, come splash around :-)  PS I took the photo on an evening in Florida Bay, loved the patterns and molten feel of it

Mr. Hot Stuff

Half-closed eyes
See me, sear me
Then the walk
Samba slide
Confident glide
Makes me too hot
To be quenched by anything
But a cool dip into you

Peggy at Poetry Jam asked us to write about something hot.  Summer here is inspiration enough, but a recent trip to Napa with my husband won out...happy weekend everyone!

Blue, blue, blue
beat, beat, beat
scurry, scurry, scurry
Of tiny, tiny feet

Moving in and out and out and in
And in and out again
Like a winged accordion
Playing tidal rhythm
Beat, beat, beat
With their tiny, tiny feet

This is offered for Mary's bird prompt at Poetry Jam and for Poetic Bloomings "A Day at the Beach" to write an abstract poem which means (loosely) it's more about sound than meaning of words. Flock behavior fascinates me and Sanderlings always make me smile the way they race along the tidal edge together.  Enjoy!
