For only me

For only me

A Poem by Lydia


Photography by Heike Moller



Sunrise

one step this side of night

the lonely wind blows

seaweed rolls across the sand

kissing but never telling

Just as the sun combs clouds

out of her sky

I shed layers of darkness

My optimism surfs in on the morning tide

sanguine and rosy cheeked

rolling the dice of life now eager to play for all I’m worth

No one can see

for only me, I smile

your title and pic make so much sense to me ... those moments shared with no one ..but more precious because of it .. then the sea, the beach, and organic sweep of seaweeds ... even our vast oceans have roots eh!? ... i just keep re-reading my friend .. :) seems you strike a very distinct edge between the encompassing glory of sunrise and oceans ...with your closing lines .. selfish ;) but too golden and private not to be .. really like your poem ... each time read again .. beautiful says i!

Very warm in South Florida this winter...even warmer than usual. Thanks, Tony. Lydi**
This is so beautiful Lydia..
My optimism surfs in the morning tide
Sanguine and rosy cheeked
Rolling the dice of life now eager to play for all I am worth
No one can see for only me, I smile.
I loved this..one has to be that self to see it...

Glad you enjoyed, Kathie. Thank you.
I love sunrise at the beach...the sound of the surf, the feel of the cool sand between my toes as a soft breeze blows...the perfect way to start a day.
Beautiful poetry Lydi - absolutely gorgeous.
