Day 11 and Writers' island

Flights of Fancy

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -


A simple house
near the ocean
white curtains
sashaying
to a rock ‘n’ roll
breeze

Big bookcases
a small TV
a poetry book
open on my
grandfather’s
trunk

me
on a red bicycle
curls bouncing
under my visor

I can’t pedal
fast enough
to the beach

I like the build up of images and the way the title and the last verse sandwich the poem nicely..

Geraldine said...

I like this, very breezy and descriptive. I felt like I was there. Well done.

Adored the image of curtains sashaying to a rock n' roll breeze.

What a lovely memory ... told with such bold imagery ... I can see you pedal off to the beach!

i live moments from the beach,, and cannot seem to get myself out of the house to go there... i do so wish i had a companion of sorts at times like this... someone that would take me beautiful places ... this was so serene... so lovely....

There is nothing like a house by the ocean and that rock'n'roll breeze sure does clear the cobwebs from the mind. Brilliant!
