Winter Beach


When you are
in love with place,
the winds
blow love your way.
Every day
begins and ends
with pure
contentment.
The white, soft sand
blesses
the bottoms
of your feet,
and the dune grass
burns golden
in the amber light
just before dark,
when the sun
goes down.
Your heart
takes flight
on every
eagle's wing,
when you are
in love with place,
and it knows
your name.

My first wordle - 15 words used out of 30.

  5. So lovely and, dare I say, comforting. Made me feel good to read it, Sherry. The pace, tone and word choices all lent to this.

  7. I love the picture of the snowy beach - not something you'll ever see in Africa. And your words never fail to stir the emotions.Those final lines are pure mastery.
