Day #27

Today’s prompt was to write a poem based on a photograph. I chose a photo from a lovely (unexpected) visit to the beach.

inhale: calm and cloudless air.
sun-kissed water
separating cobalt sky from
emerald green grass.
cool-crisp ground
makes the perfect bed
lying under golden willows.
eyes closed, listening–
the rustle of the leaves,
the call of a bird,
the pop of a skeet gun,
the crack of a driver,
the coolness of fingers,
the softness of breath.
exhale: quiet devotion.
