The Isle by the Sea

Maine Beach
Maine Beach

Many summers spent by the bay

Tasting the fragrance of the sea

Gathering star fish, sea glass too

Joy even when the sky was gray


Island folks from far and wide

Ferries chartered to get around

Clamming, crabbing, fishing too

Collecting all with joy and pride

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Very pretty rendition of thse ‘by the sea’ remembrances, Carol. I like Maine but it is sooo far away from my Southeast Texas abode. The last time we were in Maine was in October so we got to be the last customer of the season at a lobster cafe. You might know it, one with an old pickup truck put to rest outside.
    My grandmother’s family, the Fletcher’s and the Cram’s, were from Maine.
