Seashore

Spindrift,
Spoondrift,
Spray.
Silver foam.
Spume.
Shimmering
sunlit sea.
Sea fret
shielding
sea creatures,
submerged,
spinning.
Sea-pools
sparkling.
Salty,
seawater
swimming;
splashing.
Slimy
seaweed, slippery;
slithering.
Sea-birds strutting
along the stony strand.

Sea-shells
sighing; singing.
Silent sunsets,
slipping; sliding.
Soft sands
shifting,
Soles sinking.
Sherbet sunrises
skimming
across
the sky.
Stormy seas
shouting.
Seals swimming;
sleeping.
Secret
sun-dappled
shorelines.
Surfers surfing.
Sailors sailing.
Sun-hatted toddlers
squealing;
screaming
seagulls
stealing.
Salty,
sun-kissed
skin
shaking
droplets
of
cool
clear
seawater
on
the
seashore.

    Great photos to accompany your wonderful poetry, Jude. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Pete. I wouldn’t call it poetry really, just words strung together that hopefully feed your imagination.

      1. Sue says:

        Just words strung together can be most effective……

        1. Heyjude says:

          Thanks Sue. I wanted to leave out words so people could imagine what I meant – or make up their own visions.

        2. Sue says:

          And good thinking

      2. beetleypete says:

        Poetry for me, Jude. x

  2. Sue says:

    Absolutely brilliant, Jude! All those sybillant S’s

    1. Heyjude says:

      More verbal than photographic, but I had this vision in my head that didn’t really need images. The words just flowed! Who knew there are so many S words connected to the seashore!

  3. Fabulous! I love your opening image and the list of S words I’d *S*uper-impressive

    1. Is. Is. I spent all that time positioning the bloomin’ asterisks and missed a daft typo.

    2. Heyjude says:

      Glad you liked it Anabel. Hope it made you think of a day at the beach.

  4. Irene says:

    Wonderful! Your pics are pretty and the words made me giggle.

    1. Heyjude says:

      That’s lovely to know! I hope they conjured up a day at the beach for you.

      1. Irene says:

        Yes, they did. Thanks!

    That is such simply stunning symbolisms of the sea shore Jude. Made me smile. Well said with strikingly sun filled photos too

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks PP. It was such fun creating it!

  7. A simply stunningly stupendous post, Jude. You’re mind is very creative in the wee hours. 👏🏻

    1. Heyjude says:

      Haha… yes, it sure looks like it!

  8. bushboy says:

    Well thought out Jude 😀😀

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Brian. Sometimes I get inspired 😂

  9. You’ve excelled yourself both photographically and verbally. A lovely taste of the sea on a day when I won’t be walking near it. Thank you. It is good news from Queensland.
