Words leave me
today is the last day
and the beginning

a time of what I make it

Feeling sand between my toes
and sunlight on my face
I wonder of how many more freckles
will take their place

This solitude I choose
has ran its course
readying me for a new path
hope takes the place of remorse

Seems the end became the beginning
of something more subtle and strong
like the spores on back
of the greenest frond

I beget a new start

The roar of oceans wave
sends the message
of a time of passage
eroding the old
leaving room to build
throwing out the mold

It's a new day
and I carry sand and ocean spray
with me
as I make my way

feeling each new freckle
upon a wiser face

I liked it. It reminds me of something. I'm not sure what it reminds me of, but I know it reminds me of something. *lol*

Feeling each freckle upon a wiser face.   Nice way of looking at things.   Oh, let me count the freckles.  1001, 1002, 1002 1/2

this is wonderful. the imagery is really nice, but the message, the healing, the looking ahead, "throwing out the mold," the hopefulness, that's what's awesome.  thank you

the entire poem was exceptionally beautiful but I liked

Seems the end became the beginning
of something more subtle and strong
like the spores on back
of the greenest frond

wonderful words woven into hope and love
for life.

It's a new day
and I carry sand and ocean spray
with me
as I make my way

feeling each new freckle
upon a wiser face


Susan, this is absolutely precious. It's so pretty,
and has such a hopeful feel to it. I like it so
much, I'm going to keep it.
Hugs to you sweet lady

Well, I have been remiss in responding to my responses (looking for a new ride and all), but there is no way I am responding to everyone individually as I like to do...lol

Just know this...I really didn't think this piece was all that great...but all of you are!

Thank you!!

to all!

You still freckle, too?  So do I when I can get out and play - but usually I'm within four walls of some such structure or another - and the freckles fade...

I think I'll go out and capture a few today!

Meet you at the sandbox!

ooh fun, can I join you at the sandbox too?
I burn though, no tans and a few freckles.. mainly just burn.
But I could sure use the fresh air, so refreshing isn't it?

Always, Alyssa

Karilea~ Oh yes, I have freckles all over my face!  And some on my arms..I used to hate them..but now they just feel like I wouldn't be me if they weren't there!!

The sandbox sounds like fun!! Can I take a raincheck, you two?  I am sick with that yucky cold/virus thingy that has been going around...
