Descending from a lapis sky
It skimmed the surface,
Of an equally blue ocean.
Raising tiny peaks
On an otherwise slate smooth sea.
It reached and pushed
Of varying shades of blue,
And occasional flecks of white,
Which stood starkly against the mirror.
Upon greeting the shore
It embraced the Cotton Trees
Lining the peninsula beach.
Tossing leaves and small branches
In a waltz of whispers and clicks.
Passing the trees and onto the path
It pressed a cotton skirt
Against the body of a young walker,
Taking with it the fragrances
Of coconut oil and Chanel.
Racing along the jetty
It caused the young fisherman
To lift his head, smell the air and smile.
He closed his eyes, as the breeze
Returned to the crystal sky
Another great poem you wrote, Andy. Great description of the water and the shore meeting each other. The line ‘Of coconut oil and Chanel’ stood out to me…you captured a dose of reality there. Some do like tanning and fancy things along the beach 😉 ‘Zephyr’ Reminds me of a certain Red Hot Chilli Peppers song… Hope you are well, Andy. Enjoy your ‘winter’ up there and hope Melbourne was not too cold for you 🙂
Cheers Mabel 🙂 I love that Chilli Peppers song! All good here in sunny (fairly chilly) Brissie. We had a great time in Melbourne and caught up with friends, ate food, visited galleries, drank coffee… all the good Melbourne things. Stay Warm 🙂
