A Fist Full of Sunshine #poetry #music #poetsunited

I remember grabbing for life and my first …

Fist full of sunshine

rays capturing my skin

music rolling about my head

fist full of sunshine

fingers rolling

plucking each base chord

fist full of sunshine

rushing in a stream

synthesized dream

fist full of sunshine

forward  I run my ten

fastest time yet

fist full of sunshine

warmth prickling tan skin

blonde streaks glowing

fist full of sunshine

topdown on the coast

Round-a-bout rolling over the 1

fist full of sunshine

blue eyes sparkle

off the end of the day

fist full of sunshine

children dance in the last beams

catching their summer’s screams

fist full of sunshine

spray wets my lips

salt water kisses

fist full of sunshine

sand squeeking feet

under our moon lit waltz

fist full of sunshine

the watch on my wrist

counts the years apart

fist full of sunshine

your perfect silhouette

wax cast in my dreams

fist full of sunshine

there in our forever

your dark eyes drive me

fistfull of sunshine

anchor holds us close

seaweed swirls about ankles

fist full of sunshine

no storm can pull us away

from this together love

fist full of sunshine

flashes of memory

show me your face

fist full of sunshine

waiting for so many years

for love’s tide to come in

fist full of sunshine

coming full circle

to you my love

fist full of sunshine

writing act two

of me and you

fist full of sunshine

our hands clasped

footsteps in life’s sands

fist full of sunshine

swing me off the planet

write our story in moon dust

The prompt for <a href=”http://poetryblogroll.blogspot.com/2013/06/verse-first-i-remember.html” title=”verse first”>Verse First (I remember) was an exercise in writing which is always good to “light up” inspiration. I put on Yes’ “Round About” (an all time summer favorite) and wrote free for 15 minutes. I Stepped away from it (I gathered some of my photography) came back after 15 minutes and cleaned up my verse. Hope you feel pulled into the passenger’s seat of a fast convertible sports car that is driving down highway 1 in California (runs along the coast). If you feel the sun against your skin (no spf allowed) and children laughing in the waves and you see eyes and lips of two lovers held apart in time until their feet finally touch the sand together, then I have succeeded in this prompt for “I Remember…”

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. Oh, Leslie, you took me right there. Reading this poem was almost as good as being in love! Love the repeated lines, and LOVE Highway One, my very fave!!!!!! Would love to travel it one more time, wonder if I’ll get to.


  2. So nicely felt Leslie, and here, an instant’s echo! [the fist(s) full of sunshine.]

  3. Leslie, I enjoyed reading your technique as much as I enjoyed reading your poem. I love the idea of a ‘fistful of sunshine’ and can indeed feel myself driving Highway 1. Ha, I have driven that highway….not for sissies. Your pictures worked well… I love the two stanzas of love. Such a ‘drive’ often does take one’s mind ‘full circle,’ doesn’t it?


  4. Sunshine:YOu’re welcome! And, take care! ^^Vicky:的確係! ^^Bee 小妹:男人, 女人, 我都啱! XD XD XD XD!!!小豬:我都有咁嘅問題出現!我懷疑唔係用 Blogger Beta (新版)的, 係留唔到言 (但喺舊版仍然 okay). 要用 “其他” 先留到.
