Sunset in the Cove

As the evening sky begins turning shades of blue and pale pink

I watch from my vantage point on the shoreline.

Patiently, as if in slow motion, the vessels return silently to the cove

that welcomes them back home.

Another amazing harvest and the crews are thankful for the gifts

which they have been provided.

  1. Very well written. Smooth, sounds like the opening paragraph to a novel I would keep on reading. Nice work!

  2. cheerful 55..
    beautifully crafted lines.
    Have a fun weekend.

  3. Lisa...
    I LOVED your take on the pic.
    But that was a pic that went with 55 story.
    You may write a story thats TOTALLY unrelated, in any format, with or without a pic!!!
    Great job though, join us again next Friday.
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  4. smiles. yes and their bounty will feed many and the money keep their family until the next time...beautiful write...

  5. Beautiful 55. Sounds like all's right with the world.

  6. I wanna be on an evening shore line with blue and pink holding hands, waaaah.

    Oh well, your poem was the next best thing! Thank you.
