Through Time~Free Verse

By the Sea

Come, grow old with me

in a salty shanty by the sea


Let’s search for sea glass

hand in hand

Sharing the feeling of being free

no matter the sand

between our toes

Our love flows like the beach grass

as we leave behind our woes

Poetics – secret admirers

“So for this week’s poetics – I want you to write about a poet you know – about their writing style, about their uniqueness and how you as a reader connect to their words. You can pick a poem of the poet of your choice and write a response to the same as well. I encourage you to choose a poet from the Dverse community – however, if you want to select a poet of your choice or one or two line from the original piece that’s all right. The only rule is do not mention the poet”~Abhra

Can you guess who I chose? 🙂

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. I’ve neglected Carpe Diem so squeeze in Blogging from a to Z on TWO blogs and NaPoWriMo as well. But at least I am writing a bit more but reading a lot more when I’m not working. We need to change things around sometimes. Now let’s hope for warmer nights…I am still heating my home here.
