Esra Sloblock


Being There


The coast and all it has to offer
It's many gifts will freely proffer
The air unique, a taste so rare
The feeling as it blows through hair
Fortified with ozone zest
And warmth of Gulf Stream from the west
The heady blend that fills the senses
Waves that crash on sea defences
The sensation of bare feet on sand
Soft grains that run through open hand
Rock pools teeming, full of wonder
A microcosm of the wild blue yonder
Invigoration and glowing face
That's obtained from no other place

    Soft grains that run through open hand
    Rock pools teeming, full of wonder
    A microcosm of the wild blue yonder
    Invigoration and glowing face

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
