On A Far Away Beach At Dawn - Poem by Eddie Roa

On A Far Away Beach At Dawn

Your face is etched in the stars that dot a sky about to lose its black
Mirrored as a reflection on a luminous sheet of sea at low tide

The image skittered like sand pipers dissolving as the first rays
Of an impatient sun scattered light on the slate gray sand

A harsh westerly blew to shore and slapped my face
Assails my nose with the briny redolence of shoreline waste

From afar clam diggers sat on empty pails digging and
Poking with bamboo spatulas the water logged sand

I heard your voice mingle with the twittering of the shore birds
As they skipped and darted leaving their v marks on the glistening sand

I thought of my easy chair, my garden, I thought of your smile...of home
A harsh westerly slapped my face, a briny redolence assailed my nose.

    You have placed a glorious picture in my mind. It is all wonderful and as your lines our outstretched it stretches the images even more. The work of an excellent poet. Top marks! Karin Anderson (Report) Reply

    As I read the lines my imagination started to drum up and I could see right away the images especially the early dawn in a beach, the saffron skies, cold wind, kids digging, the low tide, blah, blah, blah. Yeah, it's great, I nearly pick up my brush and canvas if you know what I mean. Excellent creation is my verdict at this moment. (Report) Reply
