It was sunset time without the sun, There were clouds covering the sky, There was no wind and temperatures were warm, The Sea showed all its tricks to catch the eye. Waves were huge in the deep sea, They curled and whirled to rise high, And growled upheavals, Lashed around in every direction, Hitting boulders, … Continue reading Seaside
My homage. I got asked to write a poem for the platinum jubilee celebrations by my manager. My mind running many miles per hour produced this within fifteen minutes as the deadline was QUICK. I always enjoy writing and loved doing this piece too. It says it all. Hope you all like it.
