Dunes - Poem by Dee Daffodil

In a hollow
Etched out over time
We take shelter from the wind

This is our shelter
Safe haven!

Even as I lie here beside you
I can feel sand
Peppering my skin
And I realize
That my skin is awake!

Life is good
Inside this hollow
Built for two
Life is good!

Grasses blow wildly
Wind whispers voices
Sands become dunes
In this hollow
Etched by time

    It's hard to find such a place of sanctuary in the modern world. The sense of escaping is very strong in this Dee, and it's a very appealing notion. Great idea very well expressed - stripped down to the essentials, both poem and theme! The best to you, jim xx (Report) Reply

    Such a beautiful thought,
    a feeling, to hold each other close, perchance ...
    but, when that sand gets in your underpants,
    you can forget about romance!

    Yeah, it's a very tactile poem isn't it? That feeling is unmistakeable. I'm imagining a fairly overcast but dry day for some reason. Am I close?

    brings back menories of younger days
    the dunes that hid us from the gaze
    of others on the beach.
    Love your poem it`s a peach. love archie

    This is pageantly beautiful work, my dear...The imagery is radiant & full of verve...
    Can almost feel that last grain of sand in the heel of my beach!
