Lonely beach

Lonely beach

A Poem by MattWheatus
"

Reflections on a cold January beach walk

"

A solitary journey along a winter beach

The sea mist whipped by the wind, sends shivers down the skin

The cold wrap of January pressing cold clothes onto a cold body

 

Glistening sharp glass, rubbed into a dull smooth edge by the cold sea

Broken pieces, smashed on rocks soothed by time and pushed along

Remaining cast aside, no use to anyone but no danger at all

I really loved this. Very well written and great imagery. It reminded me of when I was younger. My aunt use to take me to the beach in the dead of winter and we would spend hours all bundled up looking for beach glass. Those pieces may be no use for many but to me they are memories that I hold dearly and I still have every piece I have ever found in a jar.
