Down By The Sea

"It is in the cold and sometimes lonely days of winter
that i long to see the ocean.
I hear her calling me when the winter wind blows.

Today.... I was there...though not really.
Miles away from the salty ocean air,
a seagull hovered above and perched upon a rooftop.

And, like the wind that calls me to the shores of the playful sea....
a seagull reminded me of the days i've spent there."
(written by me at age 18)

Avec Amour,

  7. Beautiful! Many years ago I lived up north on Lake Michigan, it was my first experience of the lake in winter and the enormous crashing waves and beauty of its fierceness captured my heart. I would love to go back there and see it again. Thanks for the memories and the beautiful poem! Theresa xoxo
