A Beautiful Day - Poem by Charles M Moore

I walked to the cliff top to watch the sunset
thinking of you and the time that we met
I watched as the sun drifted down from the sky
a reminding reflection of light in your eyes

A myriad birds flocked from over the hill
returning to roost as the world stood still
their fawning and waving high up in the air
brought memories to me how you unfurl your hair

The sea seemed to amble as if in a trance
when reaching the rocks leaping into a dance
its light sparking rainbows in fine misty haze
a lasting encounter of how we embrace

The sun kissed the horizon like I kiss your lips
it was saying goodnight with its light fingertips
caressing the ocean and stretching my way
a beautiful end to a beautiful day.

    The rhythm is very soft and relaxing. Wonderful the way you interwine so many images and involve so many senses. Very enjoyable to read and visualize. (Report)Reply

    This would be so worth the read at any time of the day, so much contained, the imagery,
    the deep feeling for another and the flow and style all help to make this a 10!

    their fawning and waving high up in the air
    brought memories to me how you unfurl your hair
    Brilliant! ! !

    Love duncan

    Charles, I liked the line 'the sea.......when reaching the rocks leaping into a dance.'

    Your cliff top, with the sun setting on the horizon, sounds the perfect place for recalling those wonderful memories.

    Love, Fran xx
