DRIFTWOOD

DRIFTWOOD

A Poem by Holly Mason

brown cinders, glistening sun
down the creek driftwood comes
so simple it looks
so stale and dead
but looking closer
nature has said
a floating gift
beauty in wood
a life of wonder
as this tree stood
a name, a carving
two friends for life
this driftwood watched
with no eyes for sight
so as it gracefully, 
sweeps past the shores
cast a glance of forevermore
beauty, even in driftwood comes
brown wood, dried in the sun
roaming, rushing, floating by
whimsical natures lullaby

This is fantastic. To see beauty in everything is a gift. To put it to words is the ultimate in artistry.

'.. this driftwood watched ~ with no eyes for sight ~ so as it gracefully, + sweeps past the shores ~ cast a glance of forevermore.. '

Your words relate to so much but especially time, friendship ~ and hope. They are so descriptive, emotionally so because, for many and certainly me, driftwood 0 once growing and the endless tides are two of the sights we need see, watch and wonder at. Holly, it's grand to see you here again, been far too long so, please stay a while. Meantime, take care, keep safe. Em

You're very welcome. Polish up your Tuesday smile..
So lovely and well-put. This reminds me of the time I spent in the Puget Sound area of Washington state, where incredible, amazing driftwood adorned the beaches.

Morning Holly... it's been way too awhile. I'm glad to see you here... Spring is here - winter is back-stepping. I looked at a couple of pieces of driftwood I've here - saved from times' waves. They fit your thoughts hon.

And you're in mine (thoughts).

And this, my friend is why I've missed your work. You write with such soul, beautiful imagery as you capture each moment with such sincerity. You truly have seen the beauty is something so simple. Lovely work as always, Holly.

It's a lovely poem Holly. The pacing is great. I like the rhythm and the asymmetrical rhyming scheme. The line "beauty, even in driftwood comes" stands out to me. The piece points out that even in things we take for granted or view as detritus, there can be found beauty and value. Kudos!

Wow! Very nice. I love the rhyme and rhythm.

In that song related to this poem, the driftwood is just floating in its beauty. But driftwood nowadays do not end as that dead wood. They're naturally stunning...a material for sculpture or that haven for our beautiful orchids. I love driftwood!
