Horizon

Day Three of the Poetry Schmoetry Blogfest! put up by the eloquent Shelly Brown. Are you leaning towards Schmoetry yet?
I used my friend C R Ward's offering of the form, Dizain for this one. And I'm thinking of you all as I sit on the beach here in lovely Sand Key. (my middle guy loves the ocean)


Horizon

As I measure eternity
From my indentation of sand
Squinting across the open sea
Block glaring sun with shielding hand

The sky azure, the sea teal blue
Separated by distant line
Enhanced by its own deepest hue
Unattainable by design
(will replace w/my pic when I get home)

I love the images this leaves me with. With these, I can close my eyes and imagine for a moment I am there. Mmm.

Thank you so much for sharing- I really liked, "The sky azure, the sea teal blue"

Because of the colors.

Unattainable is such a perfect word here. Hope you are enjoying your holiday.

Ooo, drawing from real life. Nice. Even nicer...when real life is on a beach.
This is great stuff. I can see why you like to write poetry. You're good at it.

I love the beach, and this poem! The line "Enhanced by its own deepest hue" was breathtaking. You've got a gorgeous way with words.

I've only been to a beach once and it was cloudy. I have an idea of what I was missing. Nice job.
