Quietness of the Dunes

Today I walked

Along the dunes

My heart was very quiet

The sea my sole companion


I thought of you

Your smile, your kiss

How I longed for your love

How I long for you tonight


I saw a ship

So far away

Out on the horizon

Where sea surrenders to sky


In such a way

As lovers know

Within their longing hearts

That reason gives way to love


I found a shell

Upon the sand

Its beauty touched me so

A gift from the pounding surf


That scrubs this beach

With every tide

A cycle of cleansing

Of purposeful renewal


And as I turned

To leave the beach

I looked back at the bay

And in its shining surface


I saw your face

And felt your kiss

And knew your thoughts were here

Such is the strength of our love.

    Excellent too, scamp! It is delightfully romantic....I could envision it so well, as you painted the picture with words. It is a sweet poem....I quite enjoyed it!
