Impressions at the Beach

                                             Impressions at the Beach
                                              Sand between my fingers;
                                           Sound of waves on the shore;
                                        Warmth of the sun on my back.
                                               Watching children build
                                                 sand castles and canals
                                              to carry cargos of dreams.
                                             Seems my life is contained
                                               in this microcosm of life-
                                                 here on the beach; Me-
                                               the sea- the sun- the sky.
                                                Time to commune with
                                                my thoughts and nature.
                                                To be made whole by the
                                                  caressing touch of the
                                              wind on body, mind, soul;
                                                The warmth of the sun
                                                     caressing my body
                                                          the feel of sand
                                                the sound of the waves
                                                       lulls me to sleep                                    
                                            As I lie here on the beach
                                             Dreaming of sand castles.

About clarabetty

I have always loved to write, it seemed as if I was born with a pencil in my hand. I have been a Christian most of my life and what I write is from that viewpoint. Within that framework I try to be factual and authentic in my feelings, to show that we are all alike and have similar problems and joys and that there is a Way through them... I took journalism in college and have done PR for various organizations. The genres I frequently write in are prose, short stories, essays, fiction and non-fiction for children and humorous articles, but what really speaks to me is poetry.I love to read what others have wrote and to try my hands at it.. You will find many poems here, mostly free verse. My sincere hope in sending these writings out into the vast cyber- world is that what I write will impart knowledge, lift someone up, give someone a chuckle to help get them though the day. I love to learn and pass on what I learn. to others. I believe "knowledge is power" if it is used rightly, and that "the pen is mightier than the sword." Just think if more people were writers, artists and dreamers, there might be less war and more love In the world. I hope you will 'like 'my blog and give me feedback so I know how I am doing and "Y'all come back- ya hear!!".
