Gratitude Monday in a poem

Sweater days at the beach

The sun seems to roll across the land, unfolding like a heated cotton blanket.
The sand is cool and soft like baby powder.

On the vacant beach a chorus of gulls perform for just me, as I walk barefooted,
in black sweat pants and a green woolen sweater, completely at peace.

Picture is of the Great South Bay, L.I.

(Tell me what you're thankful for this week... Send me a comment.)

Very nice. If you took out "In contrast," and "I love contrasts." the poem will be even stronger.

Mr. Putz, Although Russell is my maiden name I am not related to Jane Russell. So no, I am not a sweater girl in that sense, but maybe I would have been if I were around in 1945. I'm saying it was so nice just to feel comfortable at the beach.

Thankful for the cutest 2-year-old girl in the world who calls me mommy. For my in-laws, who support and encourage us, and who are having us over for dinner tonight. And for warm weather, finally! :)

Hello Koala and thank you for commenting here!

Loren Christie said...

Thanks Mr. Brague, Sure- I took your advice and removed my random thought that did not fit. Mr. Putz, I haven't read that book yet, nor have I been to Sweden, but I do like Swedish fish very much.

Putz said...

Loren Christie said...

... the candy called Swedish Fish, Mr. Putz.

I love this and the picture as well. I am thankful for one rainy day so I could clean a little bit before heading back out to the ballfields.

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
