Theme Thursday-Surface

is it below
or above
hard to tell


when the wall seems
too tall
to scale


the waves crashing
noise
thinking
nowhere to turn
listen
a chime sings
with the wind
feel
the rock
climb

aspens whispering

sunrise awakens
swim to shore
sand and salt
cleanses

heart beats
new beginnings
await

I love the notion of aspens whispering.

The Clever Pup said...

Well done. I'm reminded now of the opening scene in the English Patient where the plane flies over the desert. Is it skin, is it parchment?

The Mistress said...

Aspens whispering? How lovely...

Wings said...

Cool stuff... :)

Erosion can lead to falling apart... but it can uncover things as well.

Love the economy in the piece. Less is more certainly applies here.

Mmm said...

Sand and salt cleanses but sting sometimes too, no?

Ruth said...

Glorious words and images. The aspens just send me. Ours whisper too, I think we call them poplars in Michigan.

Beautiful words. Beautiful pictures.

My favorite:

"heart beats

I really like "sunrise awakens" also "sand and salt cleanses". I never looked at sunrise in quite that way, and was just reading on a website about how gargling with salt water really does help clean out the infection in one's throat. I really enjoyed this TT. Sorry I am so slow getting here, but I've been sick and slowly getting over it.

God bless.

C.M. Jackson said...

Mrsupole-thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you feel better soon. Warm salt water, restand lots of tea with honey should do the trick!! best-c
