For Ocean Lovers

Written for:  Sunday Whirl, Wordle #509

Words:  eat, shadow, unraveling, fish, language, feast,
        flame, risk, saved, stone, spray, off

Spray off ocean waves
emits a fishy scent 
as it slides over
small stones on shore.
Feast for the eyes.
Unraveling, as water
turns lacy at the hem,
waves leave shadows
on the sand.  Flames
flicker from afar
where teens build
a camp fire, impatient
to eat their roasted
marshmallows  Dare I
risk a swim?

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
