#OctPoWriMo – Day 28 – Sonnet Petrarchan – “Beach Peace” #amwriting #poetry

Prompt Day 28: Picture Prompt – Beach 



Of all the places I love to visit, 

The beach is my most adored place of peace.

Tide goes in and out, a rhythm ceaseless, 

Hands, toes buried in sand, sitting in it. 

Gorgeous place, with blue skys and sun gifted. 

I watch the children build their castles pleased, 

Towers, moats built –they knock it all down ungrieved. 

Reading novel, sunlight my spirits lifts. 


Can anything beat wading, two-miles or so, 

The water just rising around calves low; 

Sunscreen reapplied, temperature hot, glow —

Of the light on water beaded skin, gleaming. 

Tranquility found in sand, surf, sun dreams; 

Natures temple, relax, unwind; heart beams.

    This phrase certainly shows affection: “my most adored place of peace.” Amanda, this is a touching appreciation of the ocean that you love. I can relate, as I imagine many can.

      Thanks Christopher. I’m happy you relate. Good memories of a childhood vacation in the Organ Coast with white sandy beaches 🙂
