Golden waves


Yesterday I sat at the seafront for hours with a friend. It was oh so refreshing and thought provoking.  So I immediately snapped a photograph of it. Later my dear blogger friend Namrata gave me an idea to write something based on the photograph. As I put to paper my thoughts,  here's what I came up with.

**

Rocks of solid glittering gold
Immerse in the waves
A froth of white surrounds.
Waves engulf another, yet can't hide,
The beauty of the sinking sun.

**

I stand below the sinking sun,
The waves they beckon me.
What is it that troubles you? They ask
What is it you seek?

**

Oh how a cloudless day it was, 
As you and me stood upon the shore.
The waves they seemed to reflect my mood.
White crashing joyously against the gold,
A prelude of the days to come,
When in marriage we would unite, 
Me, a blushing bride in white,
You, stood with a ring of gold.

**
Which one did you like best? Please do let me know :)

  5. All of the three. Each one has got a very different thing to say. I am feeling a little down today, so the second one I can relate the most to. However, the third one speaks of the lovely dreams and aspirations. First one defines the photograph the best. You see I found each one very special and beautiful. :D

  10. Nicely written lines all of them but if you would insist, then...
    From - to- " A prelude of ................... ring of gold."

    Poetry is certainly your forte
