LOVERS ON THE SHORE ~ A 4 4 4 2 Sonnet



ANGELA and I ~ All day on Horses

More tiring than it really sounds 

We arrived at the Lake in darkness

Relieved and Joy that knew no bounds !


We knew where we would pitch our tent

Silence except for the wind in the trees

Call of Birds and howl of wolves

Floated on the gentle breeze !


DARK ~ so natures majesty was veiled

MOON hidden by a bank of cloud

Tent pitched ~ cold beer ~ no need to light a fire

Bed ~ loving ~ far from the Maddening Crowd !


Then in the Morning ~ New Day Dawning

And PARADISE ~ just outside the awning !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love Brian XOX


Camping on Horseback in the Rockies USA is as near to

HEAVEN as you can get on EARTH ~ Angela & Brian XOX

    You gallavanting around all day on those horses?! And bit smoochy clip too. heehee. A fine write, and atmospheric clip Brian. I remember it. I gave up watching 'Top of the Pops' from about 1995. Or was it 1066?


      Thanks STEVE please you liked Poem 'n Pic and the Music ! Strangers on The Shore is iconic and has long outgrown TOTP ! Friday is an evening for smoochin' for Angela & I ~ Amen Yours BRIAN

      • orchidee

        Erm, I must leave you to you smoochin' now then - swoon! heehee.

      • Fay Slimm.

        You fill the experience with happy romance - to be with a loved one in those sort of places must be like heaven on earth Brian - thanks for sharing its beauty with us.

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          Yes indeed FAY ~ The better the company ~ the better the experience ~ wherever you are in the WORLD ! BUT if you are Horse Trekking and Camping in the Rockies ~ even better ! Pleased you enjoyed the shared experience ~ Yours BRIAN & ANGELA XOX

          A lovely enchanting poem Brian.

          Thank you and stunning pictures and Stranger on the Shore a great tune from the legendary Acker Bilk!

          Keep writing
          Fine B

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            THANKS FB ~ Pleased you shared & enjoyed the experience expressed in the Poem \'n Pic ! Acker Bilk\'s Stranger on the Shore gets more emotive every time I hear it ! Thanks for your encouragement ~ BRIAN

          • Christina8

            It is an enchanting and beautiful write! It is indeed exhausting to ride horses all day, but great to find yourself next to the one you love!! I've never been to the Rockies *gasp* Hugs to you both--Christina

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              Thanks CHRISTINA ~ Pleased you enjoyed the Poem \'n Pic and also the tune Strangers on the Shore (which I changed for my title to LOVERS !) It is very emotive ~ and always makes me cry because it evokes so many memories. Angela and I have many things in common ~ Love of the USA & Spain ~ Love of Horses & Domestic Animals although she prefers DOGS ! and a love of Biological and Environmental Science ~ Music and of course Christianity ! Our tastes in food are also similar ! When we visit the USA we are amazed at the Scenery because it is on a much grander scale than the UK especially the GREAT LAKES ~ Forests and Mountains. The MALLS etc may make much of America uniform but the GEOLOGY ~ accent & attitude & music is different in every State ! Good news that N & S Korea are shaking hands ~ lessens the threat of WW3 ! We have a first name for the NEW PRINCE ~ Louis Arthur Charles ~ Interesting ! He is 5th in line for the Throne ~ but we\'ve never had a KING LOUIS ~ France has had 14 at least ! Thanks for your kind comment ! Abrazos Fuertes para Ti ~ Angela y Brain @@@@@@@ !

              • Christina8

                Thanks for the update! Y los abrazos fuertes!

                Very beautiful Brains as always.
                Keep up the good work.

                • BRIAN & ANGELA

                  Thanks THETA ~ pleased you liked it ~ There is an intrinsic beauty in POETRY ~ VISUAL ART & MUSIC ~ I always try to complement these genres and triple the beauty. There are some excellent Poets on this site and I try (often in vain) to emulate their excellence. Yours BRIAN (UK)
