Sue has chosen rather an engaging photo this week
For visually challenged writers, the image shows an opening between boulders, through which a rocky plateau can be seen, half hidden by mist.
Oh that I was bold enough to enter this portal to another world,
Take me away from the trials and stress of today,
The constrictions and restrictions of modern day living.
Oh to tread free in a place where the air is clean,
The sea welcoming in its lullaby,
The lull of the waves hypnotic and soothing to my troubled spirit.
Oh to feel the sand beneath my feet,
The trickle of the tide as grains tickle between my toes,
Cool and refreshing against my fevered skin.
Oh that I could touch the smooth rock,
Embrace the texture and jaggedness in the nooks and crannies,
Perhaps home to sea creatures or escapees alike.
Oh to feel the sun upon my face,
To taste the salty tang against my dry lips,
To be kissed and caressed by Nature’s warmth.
Oh that I was able to enter this place and be free,
Not dream from the confines of my bed, paralyzed and alone,
Reliving memories that linger from a world that no longer exists.
