Sea Oats Waving in a Slight Breeze - poem

  • Aug 4, 2009
  • by

please read the following slowly, without any expectation - it is a mood piece - like your outside hearing a bird-


the moon relfects a pure light

sea oats waving in a slight breeze

someone's true heart is awake

and there is only the gift

not to be measured

not to be thought

but just as a man walking

his two feet feeling a quiet wonder

that takes him right here

where you are

and sea oats waving a smile

for all the stars to see

-gary c. esposito

Mine was supposed to be more like a tanka. I've already removed it.

i read it and thought is was good! didn't comment because you said you would likey remove it . you can always re-post. don't be hard on your creativity. i liked it because (and i say this very much as a compliment) it reminded me somewhat of childrens verse. i love fairy tales and your verse seemed to be part of that nature.

Well if you meant that as a compliment...

for me your short verse had a touch of something in my childhood.

some of the greatest authors/poets would sometimes write in that nature;...

here's E. E. Cummings' "maggie and milly and molly and may" -

maggie and milly and molly and may
went down to the beach (to play one day)

and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn’t remember her troubles,and

milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were;

and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and

may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.

For whatever we lose(like a you or a me)
it’s always ourselves we find in the sea

I've never read that one. It's wonderful.

Beautiful imagery and such a sweet piece.  Sea oats are one of my favorite things to photograph at the beach, and the beach is one of my favorite places to hang out at night.  Thanks for sharing, Gary :)

By the way, since this falls under the category of "Original Writing", I'm going to categorize it as such!
