Poems-Treasures of Life and a Day at the Beach Building Sandcastles Response to Brenda Arledge’s Word Prompt-Week 47,48

I love poetry. I am a lifestyle enthusiast and like to write articles and poems on lifestyle changes that benefit people.

The soul is a treasure chest; hidden inside of it are priceless jewels.

— Matshona Dhilwayo

Brenda gave us the word prompt ‘Treasure’ for week 47. When I saw the word, the thought that immediately came to my mind was that our life is itself a treasure. We are lucky to get this life, the highest in creation. To lead a life of dignity and self-respect is the greatest treasure of all, I feel. We often waste precious time chasing after fleeting pleasures and goods.


Being productive and doing something worthwhile adds meaning to life. Life is short and time is precious. It flies by very fast. Time once spent can never be regained so we need to spend it wisely. True happiness can be found in the higher values of life such as love, peace, hope, compassion and empathy. So, my first poem is about the treasures of life and the value of our life on this planet.


Since I was not able to submit my response to word prompt but So this hub has two poems from two word prompts/47 and 48 .I hope Brenda likes it, as also my other hubber friends

Poem-Treasures of life-Response to Brenda Arledge’s Word Prompt-Week 47

Memories are treasures that can’t be stolen

They are embedded in our heart and mind

Valuable moments that cannot be brought back

We can only cherish them on recollection.


Craving only increases troubles

Satisfaction with little gives pleasure

Contentment is a hidden treasure

That brings meaning to life altogether.

Knowledge is the best treasure

Which no thief from you can steal

And never will we lack when

Blessed with this treasure.

What better treasure than

A life of self-respect and dignity

A heart of humility and kindness

Of love, laughter and faith.


Learning to treasure yourself

And to live with no regrets

To Experience the wonder and magic

Is the true essence of your life.

But the most precious treasure is time

We must spend it carefully and wisely

For we have a limited supply of it

As time lost can never be regained.

Building Castles in the Sand

Building Castles in the Sand

Poem-A Day at the Beach Building Sandcastles- Response to Brenda Arledge’s Word Prompt-Week 48

As I walked in the sand along the beach

I felt at home and peace within my reach

I thought to myself, is there a better destiny

Than to live appreciating the beauty of the sea.


We built castles in the sand and

Wrote our names in the sand

And gazed in amazement

As the waves washed them all away.


Sitting on the sand in the beach

Listening to the waves break pitch

With the warm breeze on my face

I felt relaxed and at peace.

You can either be a victim of the world or an adventurer in search of treasure. It all depends on how you view your life

— Paulo Coelho

Once your feet have touched the warm sun-drenched sand of the seashore you will never ever be the same.

— Patsy Gant

I can’t wait for summer every year

To escape to the beach

To lay in the clear sand

And enjoy the sun’s warm rays.

The real enjoyment is on the beach and in the encounter with the water and with the way the sand heals the soul.

— Elizabeth Berkley

A visit to the beach is always welcome

Imagining different stories in each grain of sand

Sitting quietly on the sand, breathing in the salty air

Brings sanity to my mind and replenishes my soul.
