blue ocean on my mind
kind, gentle waves beckoning
imagining beach walks, hand in hand
sand in my sandals, footprints next to mine
sunshine, the color of gold
cold no more on this wintry day
gray, ice melting away, my heart warming
yearning, hoping, wanting
nothing but clear skies, serenity
longevity of love everlasting
I have been taking lots of photographs the last few days, but it's been so foggy and cloudy that all the pictures come out looking gray. I have been yearning for sunshine, blue skies and the calmness of the ocean. And since it's too cold to go to the beach, all I can do is imagine it and visualize it. There is something so serene about the ocean that it brings me peace and joy. Ah yes, those romantic walks on the beach!

My poem has been inspired by the "Sunday Mini-Challenge" at Imaginary Garden With Real Toads. The theme is to create a poem with a chained rhyme, where the last word of one line rhymes with the first word of the next line. This was challenging indeed, and I had to write it in free verse first, and then create the rhymes. But in the end it was fulfilling and fun. Here is to blue oceans and love everlasting. Enjoy the photos and poem!
