The Photograph - Poem by Patricia Gale

Rising from the sea
Like a ball of fire
Crimson red and orange flickering in the sky

Gentle breezes blowing kisses upon our cheeks
Cool morning air
Bringing us closer to feel the warmth of our hearts

Waves dancing to greet her beauty
The world still silent from its slumber
A melody from the sea splashing against the shore line

Sharing this moment with you
Was like a piece borrowed from heaven
Adding an angel to behold it with

To hold your hand and walk upon the sand
A picture I still envision
As I hold the photo of a different place and another time
