for just that one moment

for just that one moment

A Poem by Lydia
"

nothing like an early morning walk on the beach

"


photo copyright:


the sky this morning

was burgundy wine

seagulls debated

over who would catch the plumpest fish

the world was my coffee mug

and the java was spiced with sea air  

a wanton page of newsprint 

wrapped itself around 

an unsuspecting palm trunk

there were no blanks

in the conversation i had with me

gathering a cache of inspiration for later use

i smiled

because for just that one moment

all was right with my world

This is lovely. Short and sweet, with wonderful images. I love the line "the world was my coffee mug". It conjures up those rich warm moments of being perfectly content and happy with everything around you. The perfect day. The perfect morning. I really enjoy how you create that warmth. I also love "there were no blanks...in the conversation I had with me..." that is a lovely way to put being along with your thoughts, and at peace with your own companionship. I really enjoyed this from beginning to end! Well done!

Thanks, Brittany. I appreciate the fact you are reading some of my older poetry.
I am totally enjoying your work. Powerful imagery and simple. Just the way I like it - like ee cummings - you don't need a lot of words to say a lot.

Good detail right up front. There were a few things I wasn't into, but I read another of your poems, and I think you're too good for this website. Start revising, revisiting, rewriting, editing, and submitting them for publication.

What a lovely first poem to read this morning. Guess where I'm heading to now? I love the vivid imagery and descriptiptive language. "Because for just that one moment all was right with my world.", moments like that are so special and very rare to me so hang on to them for dear life. Thanks for sharing this treasure. Have a lovely day. I'm off to the beach for a long walk and talk with myself...

Yes the solitude and the feeling of being at peace with nature is such a powerful feeling. A well described morning beach walk Lydi.

There is nothing more lovely than the ocean in the morning, the seagulls, coffee spiced with sea air....absolutely beautiful Lydi.

I think I've found my new favorite!

The spiritually uplifting effect of this early morning walk, casts any lingering cerebral cobwebs that may still be present into oblivion and the new day can be greeted with much anticipated elation !

A terrific, inspirational poem !
