Sun swept silky skies
Flowing
Seagulls
Flying high
In the depths of the sky
Then
Rolling
Diving down
To glide
On the thermals
Winds again flapping
For height to gain

The cool breeze
Sweeps over
The sunny scorched dry land
Tents flapping around
Billowing this way
Then that
Green fields
Flowing
All around
Filling the beautiful landscape

The steps to the beach
Are easy to reach
Although
Care you must take
Going down
Or you might end up
Upside down


Gazing at the beautiful archway
Woven into the gigantic rock
Godís wonderful handiwork
For all to see
For you
And
For me

There is a need
To get away
From
The day to day

There is a need
To spend
Some time

Getting
The bigger picture

Getting
The bigger
Frame

Looking at
The greatest canvas
By
The Greatest artist

It brings
My troubles
To the right size

Light enough
To carry
To
The foot
Of
The
Cross

Very nice, although I personally as a reader thought the process of the sentence structure was stretched out was a bit too much. Beautiful words and discriptions however. God bless ya, littlelight

While there are some minor element improvements that could be made on this free form poetry, I (peronally) would rank this as one of the best of the year. Thank you

A very nice poem - good images.
Brandi Roberts07/21/05
Not exactly my favourite style of poetry, but great imagery nonetheless. Thanks for sharing.
Val Clark07/22/05
This is a great effort for a beginner. Lovely images paint a clear and engaging picture. Getting away from it all is a great way to regain perpective, well done.

I actually thought this was brilliant. Loved the imagery, loved the style. The message was spot on and I had no trouble with the flow. I love sentimental prose, but am not a huge free-style poetry fan. But I have to say, I loved this. Well done!
Blessings, Lynda

Poetry is, well, greek to me! So no comments on the poetry aspect, but loved the descriptions.
Suzanne R07/25/05
Loved this line with the alliteration - "Sun swept silky skies". Beautiful descriptions. Well done!
