Joys of Earth

Age Rating: 7 +

The day shimmers
Beneath the sun's gaze;
The beach wears a leopard's coat,
Tawny gold,
Spotted with the black wings
Of resting gulls.

The clouds crack open
Like milkweed pods;
Their opal fluff
Drifts across the sky,
Scattering wispy shadows
Among the dunes.

The wind quivers
Through sea grass lyres;
Its delicate sighs
Bend the air
Into fragile spirals
Along the sand.

Oh, the flamboyant joys of earth!

Joan, This is the first poem I've read of yours. I really like it! I always find the shore a place where the rush of life is somehow put into perspective. You have painted it so well. Greg Kis

Great imagery, like a picture in words. Well done.

Joan, reading your poem in the middle of winter turns ones thoughts into the joys of summer. Wonderful write.

"Its delicate sighs

Oh, the flamboyant joys of earth!"

I am charmed by these words!
With love,
Irina.

This is a poem that must be read aloud. Terrific images in a well crafted style. It has all the elements of a classic.
