Fay Slimm.






Ground shakes
as massive breakers force reverberation.


Blast booms
on granite as vibration crashes in spume.


Waves break
over ground gradation as din accelerates.


Swell sound
cracks as liquid hits rock and fall rebounds.


Water weight
trapping soaked air roars with anticipation.


Before long
tide will turn round for another shore-song.

    Good write Fay.

  • Teddy.15

    this is beautiful and very creative, i almost drowned in the imagery, wonderful.

  • L. B. Mek

    with a dramatically - timely picture
    and triumphantly melodious words: combining
    to capture every aspect of that sea-side majesty, we
    need only close our eyes to be immersed, entirely
    in the height of Nature's magnificent, glory!
    a stupendously magnetic read for all shoreline enthusiasts, dear Fay

    dear Fay,

    if a person starts at the top, and only reads the top line of each stanza, it makes for another poem...two poems in one!

    *hugs, Cat

    Another beauty, Fay.

    Beautiful, We called in to Uphill near Weston Super Mare on Tuesday on our way back from Exeter. Didn't see anything like this though, It was a millpond.

    Mind breaks
    Without any sound,
    Pyres burn in tune with
    Fast blowing wind....

    Fay, I grew up in a seaside town and your imagery is spot on. Wonderful write. ; )

  • Goldfinch60

    The power of the sea is so thrilling Fay.
