Beckoning Sea

written by: Ken Allan Dronsfield



My hand reaches out to block

the suns rays; soaring high is a lone

white gull, a warm breath on cheeks

reflecting the blue sky; parted lips.

The sea overflows the white sands

serene of shadow; soft of noise

as wings of green teal swiftly wave;

heartbeats quicken.

I see a blue autumn sky

love, hopes and dreams

sometimes, I see you there.

Off-shore is where you'll find me

even if you're only in dreams

ocean winds beckoning taking

me so far away from you;

an autumn sea rages.
