Word Poetry Challenge #8 : Sunsets
photo sourced from the post

How do I write of the sunset, when it has never needed words?
How do I write of a priceless beauty I’ve never needed money to afford?
Because for far too many times, I have looked in wordless wonder,
And the more I saw of sunsets, the more my heart grew fonder.

Word Poetry Challenge #8 : Sunset

gazing at this beautiful creation of God
savoring the solitude I rarely have
lying on a hammock
closing my eyes as I listen
the sound of the whispering waves
feeling the rays of the sun
caressing against my face
beads of moisture trickle down my skin
the summer breeze touching my flesh
brushing my hair strands like a willow cat tails

Life in Mono (Poetry)
photo sourced from the post

Numbed by the continual torment.
Immobilized by desolation.
Standing at the edge of the shore.
Emotions were swallowed,
drowned in depth of me.
