Re: Poems by Southern Belle
Thanks for the great comments guys! I guess I was a little self consious about Walking Along the Beach because it's so different from what I normally do. Two funny little sidenotes about that poem, 1) I've never been to a beach in my life, that was just me really wanting to be there and almost being able to feel the sand under my feet. 2) I wanted to be able to describe the ocean's taste better than just "salty" so I went to my kitchen and tasted some salt to think of words to describe it. Here my next poem. You should love this one BGS. Please tell me what you think of it guys because I thrive on your comments. Enjoy!
Dark clouds brood,
As they dominate the sky.
But fresh and cool the breeze blows in my face,
Accompanied by a bird's cheerful cry.
Though the sky is overcast,
And the clouds are dark;
Beauty still exists,
Beauty sung of by the wind and lark.
Darker still the clouds become,
As the rain starts to fall.
The heavy drops shatter like crystal shards,
And the beads roll away; fragile and small.
Though heavy the rain does fall,
And shows no sign of stopping;
Beauty the drops do bring,
Beautiful in their dropping.
The rain casts a veil.
We have but to look through it,
To see that peace and beauty still prevail.
