The ocean plays its rhythm sweet and low
And floods my soul again with peacefulness
Transporting me to shores of long ago
On cresting waves of joy and happiness.
I drink in memories of childhood
Immerse myself in innocence and glee
In carefree days where it was understood
Imagination was reality.
Grand castles made of sand housed ladies fair
And gallant knights were always close at hand
To battle dragons, banish every care
Preserving honor far across the land.
Awash in swells nostalgic I can find
Those magic times again that were so kind.

Denise

CONGRATS ON THE BIG 10 DENISE!!!!
You were one of the first people to reply  to my work when I came here...too scared to come into the big forums...I posted in the Pub...and I dont think you've missed very many of mine ever since.TY  

this poem is excellent...the imagery is perfect.
you write the ocean so well.
take care, jm


 Is it too much to find an answer,
Is it too much to hold you close.
Is it too much to find a reason,
Is it too much to free my soul --
From self control ...
And I know you're always waiting for me ...
You take me far away,
And I know you're holding me ...
And it's better now ...

I loved this one, particularly the lines.
"I drink in memories of childhood
Immerse myself in innocence and glee"

Such a wonderful epitome of reality and the truth of getting old and wanting to cling on to childhood, innocence, and bliss..

Congrats on the 10K!

Regards - Sudhir.


 Take each day as it comes,
Consider each day as a flight,
Try hard to succeed and fly,
Surely then you will reach some height.

But if by some chance you don’t,
Remember that tomorrow will always come.
Learn this well and learn this hard
That today’s efforts will pay for tomorrow’s fun.

Oh Denise...I can't stay here and play today, but I had to stop in and say congratulations and also add a word of thanks for your prayers and concern and for informing my friends here of the reason behind my absence. I love you girl...big hugs from you to me and congratulations!!!
