Anthony Di'anno

(North Yorkshire)

A Day at The Coast (Painted)


A golden orb floats up from the ocean.
Frost on a branch expires in a spiky wet motion.
The sun drips like warm honey,
Inside of my head.
I sit in awe of a delicate thread.
Moss mottled stones whisper 'come hither'.
Pearls on the web shiver and quiver.
Red admirals are hornpiping rocks,
Ever so ancient.
Rugged and worn,
Incredibly patient.
Those pearls in the web,
Enchanting my soul.
The beauty of nature,
Keeping me whole.
Foaming white horses,
Riding the crest of a wave.
Ripples receding,
Revealing a cave.
Shiny cold water,
Briny wet walls.
Squeezing through tight holes,
Into cavernous halls.
Slimy old seaweed,
Salty old smells.
Broken up crabs
Spiraling shells.
Peering into the dark,
Out through the gloom.
Seeking a seahorse,
Lacking a groom.
A close breaking wave,
Brings me out of the cave.
Barefoot and carefree,
Under the sun,
To slowly start walking,
Then break into a run,
Childlike innocence,
Playing all day,
Reluctant to leave,
Wanting to stay.

    Love your painting. Is it for sale?

    You have masterfully painted a seashore delight,
    Given us with words, all the scenes that are right!

    I know because I lived on an Island till I was 20 and went to the beach almost everyday.
    I saw, the ocean and beach I knew and so loved as a child in your wonderful poem.
    Thank you for such a beautiful souvenir.and delectable vision.

    It is so exciting to be left on a sea shore watching breakers pound the strand, inhaling the salty smell of seaweeds and observing crabs and spiralling sea shells! Pearls on the web shivering and quivering is a beatiful image! (Report) Reply

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
