What happened to my creativity!

Saturday, April 25, 2009

I have been trying for months to write. I belong to a poetry team and could not even write a Limerick for a long time. Then I did get back into writing those. Today I read one of the other poems and it triggered something within me and I began to write. I am going to share it with you. because I am so relieved to find I still have some creativity left. This gives me hope that I also will find the control and courage I need to lose some more weight. I had become convinced that I had no will power or control left.....and I felt that way about my creativity. Happily, I think a door was opened to me today and I will walk through it.

The Gulf Waters and the Beach

Looking out across the gentle flowing waves,
As they caress the shoreline like a line of knaves.

Seagulls squawking, climbing high in the sky,
Nothing but black and white showing as they fly.

Bright gleaming white tops on the horizon waves
Meeting the early morning and the incoming haze.

Wet sand with footprints pressed within
Giving proof another soul has walked therein.

Pelicans sitting on the old fishing dock
Preening and sunning creating a mock.

Waiting patiently for the mullet to jump
So they can dive and catch them in triumph.

Shuffle your feet and the sandpipers run
In and out with the waves in the glorious sun.

They catch the coquina's those little shell fish
That dig in the sand so they will be missed.

The sky has become black overhead
With flapping wings and shrill call to be fed.

The school of mullet has now arrived
What a feast they are having as they dive.

Gods new day of creation begins again
Today I was here to witness His domain.

The beauty of it all cannot be denied
The care of all His creatures is His pride.

    Your words have always seemed inspiring to me, whether comment or limerick or just a hello!

    I have a feeling that you will always possess your talents Dorothy. I enjoyed this walk on the beach so much, it makes me want to eat mullet and watch the coquinas hide soon again here. Your poem is so full of the notice you take in life, loving warm and exceptional.
