Lifelong love affair

20121006-161703.jpg
The children knows the sea as faithful friend
A soothing kiss of waves embrace their feet
The playful surf of summer days so sweet
Affair of love that grows and never end
~~
In skin the memory of sun remains
Inside their shoes a little sand is left
And, though the ice has left them here bereft
In shoes remain the sand to ease their pains
~~
And growing old and wise they can recall
Though knows the danger of a stormy sea
Of kisses from the summer surf makes free
The lifelong love affair them still enthrall
~~
This love of sea begins when you are young
Of kissing waves, a song so heartfelt strung

  1. You have a very nice site here, young man! I like the theme especially. Nice work too. And nice photographs. Did you take them all? Keep writing, and thanks for dropping by my site.

    Please do leave a comment if you truly find something of interest there. I thought I’d leave my comment here, because sonnets are…my thing, I guess one might say. Some nice imagery up there particularly toward the second and third quatrains. Particularly in those regions, it sounds quite nice when read aloud.

    • Thank you very much David. All pictures except when saying so are my own. I am not particularly young, but as a poet I’m a newbie, but I love structured poetry, and write daily on twitter also. On this site I try to combine pictures with poetry.

I try to reciprocate all comments. If you want me to visit a particular post, please direct me directly to that post.
