Sunrise - Totomai Martinez

Sunrise – Totomai Martinez

In waves
the sun tiptoes
and sinks into footprints
left in soft sand.

In a gull’s cry
echoes carry.
Lovers come together
on the strand.

Yesterday leaves
with the tide
to bring the future —
glistening footholds.

Tonight at the dVerse Poetics Mary is serving up the inspiring photography of Totomai Martinez. Come and join the fun and art.

This poem can now be found in The Unique & Sundry, which happens to be available on Amazon.

Disembark Yesterday

, , , , ,

Day 6 prompt was to meditate and write. Below is the result.


Disembark Yesterday

Rattle the foundation of faith
blind of other designs too long.

Pound at the shackles
that have left flesh raw.

Take a running leap
off decrepit stairs
land face to the sky
arms ready to receive.

Unmask the face of strength
find it is your own.
