Making plans

Blue in blue, my tires sing on gravel —
sing the praise of beach and balls,
of being sailor, pirate and to travel
on the seven seas; to see it all,
to live; to grow from boy to man.
A summer’s day is built from dreams
from salt and sand and making plans,
this day is more than what it seems.

Today Sarah hosts poetics at dVerse and wants us to write ekphrastic to the pictures of Fay Collins. Join us and write to your favorite picture. When I saw the road leading to the sea I imagined myself bicycling on that road.

  1. Hurrah, a cycling poem! I can imagine freewheeling down that path to the sea! I love the jaunty rhyme and the pace of your poem, Bjorn, and the thought of a making plans for a summer’s day ‘ built from dreams
    from salt and sand’.

  2. And what a journey it will be – so exciting to see what is next ~ Love the positive tone set by: my tires sing on gravel

  3. Lovely write of the adventure of a summers day at the sea. Yes, dreams are fulfilled there, imagination excelling.

    from salt and sand and making plans,

    A quiet and peaceful day is perfect to give inspiration to lots of ideas to plan ahead!

  5. I do enjoy a day at the beach, it brings out my inner child. My imagination sails in the breeze.

    this day is more than what it seems.

    Welcome Back!

  6. Indeed. We never made plans, playing, and even so, the foundation was made for what to come by the exercise with the little bucket and the little spade, or whatever it was. I disagree with your way of rhyming here; balls and all are absolutely not rhyming, and should not be thought of as so, and even so I enjoyed the reading.
