Short Story Slam Week 9

Short Story Slam Week 9

Draped in white satin, trimmed in lace
Sweeping beauty
As dusk fades into evening
Lantern in tote
As the sunsets upon the horizon
I watch you sail into the deep blue sea
As the tides roll in and out
The wind whispers
Sweet goodbyes
With gentle brushed kisses
O the sweet scent of sea salt 
Each breeze sweetly brushes across my cheek
Each a reminder of cherished love
As the sunsets upon the sea
Multi-colors of sea mist blue
As the misty pink blue sky
Rolls into one upon the horizon
Until both are one
As the love we share
As I watch you sail into the night
With sails set for sea
The horizon blends into one 
As I long to be upon this sea barren voyage
As I long for the touch of your love
As you melt into the horizon
Into unknown seas
The thunder rolls
As I turn to go
As I long for your touch
One more time
The sweet smell of sea salt upon your lips

Do you you enjoy watching the sea?

Oh Beth, your words are so descriptive. They paint a picture in one's mind as they are read. Lovely poem. As always, your choice of songs is great and I love to listen to them as I am writing a comment. Have a lovely weekend. Mickie :)
