Capturing the essence of nature

I love water--rivers, streams, the ocean.  Water is soothing, calming, refreshing.  Whenever I walk along the beach or waterway, I try to capture the scene in writing.  A few summers back Woman's World published this short, simple rhyming piece of mine:

The sun is casting diamonds
on a sea of blue before my eyes,
The waves are lapping in and out
and sound like very gentle sighs.
The sand is warm between my toes
but cooler over in the shade,
I lie back in the summer sun
and take a sip of lemonade.


  1. Water ah yes so relaxing. I especially love waterfalls or babbling brooks.
