Our Beach #oneshotwednesday

Early dawn awakens

calling us to her

waves recede their motion

revealing white treasure


unveiled  each saucy look

Wide eyed as a child

taking in the picture

things so tame yet wild


birds stilt-like skinny legs

scurry dodge the flow

She knows us and smiles

little ones on the go


lovers in their own world

place where it all starts

hoping never for an end

passion gives a spark


wondrous moments in the fog

fingers always clasped

bare foot momentary prints

they  never seem to last


Seashells never found before

driftwood sadly bare

relics of those broken hearts

dreams , never shared


we take a walk along our beach

and reach toward the sand

quickly reaches back at us

her foam covered hand


I grew up and lived at or close to the beach. The world there is free, clean and wild. It always beckons some of us back for more.

Please join us for a walk with others in the world of poetry at One Shot Wednesday

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

    1. We had a fantastic hoaidly at Beachside during early September. The house was equipped with everything we needed a real home from home and was spotlessly clean. The location was perfect, being right on the beach but also a short walk to shops, cafes and a pub. The footbridge across the River Adur to Shoreham town is currently being replaced, but there is a regular shuttle bus in service. Thanks, Rae we can’t wait to go back! lablos


    2. Thanks for the new things you have exesopd in your writing. One thing I’d like to reply to is that FSBO human relationships are built after a while. By bringing out yourself to owners the first weekend their FSBO will be announced, prior to masses commence calling on Thursday, you create a good link. By sending them instruments, educational elements, free reviews, and forms, you become a good ally. Through a personal interest in them and also their problem, you make a solid connection that, many times, pays off if the owners opt with a realtor they know in addition to trust preferably you actually.


  1. There is such life on the beach. Your piece is a wonderful reflection of life. I have no doubt Anne Morrow Lindbergh (author of Gift From the Sea) would also have enjoyed your poem.


  2. Leslie,
    I really enjoyed the animation you gave to the ocean and beach. It was a simply magical poem. Makes me want to head to the beach right now. There is just something about beaches that brings a smile to my face and probably everyone elses too. Thank you for sharing.
