You were right J. Marie - I got inspired!

A Second
by Lori Lockheart

The cloud's violet haze
Covers the mystic sky.
The song of a soaring seagull
Slowly passes me by.

The ocean's big white waves
Break like a rippling sail.
The sound of the wandering breeze
Is carried with an untouched shell.

The sun reflects on the water,
Shimmering like a candle in the wind.
The time of the soothing sunset
Is slowly drawing to an end.

A sudden glimpse of the moon appears,
Summoning the night to arrive.
The memory of that faded image
Is only one second passing in time.


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean. Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens. Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance. And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance - I hope you dance.
song by LeeAnn Womack

Lori* You drew such a beautiful picture with this and it's as vivid as if you would have painted it upon a canvas.  Thank you for taking me there within your words.


 
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Beautifully written poem!!!  The imagery is just wonderful!!  Love the last stanza especially.

Lori~
If you want to elicit emotion,
take your muse to the ocean.
This is wonderful.
