Sunny Day by the Sea


Hot Sunny Day


Hot Sunny Day

The woman was barefoot.

The hot sun was beating down on her

as she was looking up.

Soon the sun would fade

it would be replaced by moon and stars.

Tears slipped down her face

and she didn't know why.

She dabbed them away with her long flowing skirt,

edged with lace.

A patch of water near a rock

was an ocean to the tiny creatures living there.

She teased the tiny fish with her toes. Toe nails brightly painted

matching colours of the fish.

She stooped to move the seaweed tangled round her ankles, slim.

The ground was very hot beneath her feet

as she ran swiftly in the glittering sand.

Long hair flowing as she moved then clambered up some rocks nearby

and stopped to make a wish.

She smiled and stepped on the highest rock.

Arms unfurled.

This was her world. A sea so peaceful as in she dived.

Into the unknown.

Thank you Hertha, pleased to read your comments on the write.

As you say we all see things differently. I really hadn't though of that though, my thoughts were that she was a young woman who's moods took her to different levels.

This is an amazing poem honestly. The woman described in this poems appears sad but with a hint of joyfulness and bright however, I guess she cant take whatever is making her sad so she committed suicide. This are my thoughts. The power of poetry amazes me. We all take it in in our different ways.
