The Dunes

“Let my toes teach the shore
how to feel a tranquil life
through the wetness of sands

Let my heart latch the door
of blackness, as all my pain
now blue sky understands”
― Munia Khan

Oasis To My Soul

An oasis with water is cool to my skin 
Giving such shade from the heat of the day
Lets me rest from the world’s loud din

So is your love this way for my soul
A breathe of fresh air and a sweet melody
 Touches my heart, making me whole©

“B” Is For Birds

“When I go down by the sandy shore
I can think of nothing I want more
Than to live by the booming sea
As the seagulls flutter round about me

I can run about–when the tide is out
With the wind and the sand and the sea all about
And the seagulls are swirling and diving for fish
Oh-to live by the sea is my only wish.”
~Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Rainbows All Around

These photos were taken in Surfside Beach, SC; a very colorful little seaside town.  The following art piece was done by a local artist (Thomas Simpson, 2009). It is painted on the side of an entire restaurant. Quite eye-catching for this normal cinder block building.

You will find many places with very colorful houses, on the beach and off; they are on stilts  (as you will see often on the West Coast, but not as often on the East Coast). This is a beautiful place, just a 20 minute drive from Myrtle Beach and less tourist ridden. Many of these houses are for rent, weekly, monthly, exc. There are also locals and many great local restaurants within walking and golf cart distance.

The Ocean Song

dsc_0041-2

by Mac©

I could listen all night long to the sound of your rhythmic song

Your waves they splash to and fro as the waters ebb and flow

I shut my eyes, listen close as I hear the song you chose

A perfect pitch, a lucid role as you sing a tranquil solo

The melody touches deep, soothing me, I fall asleep

Sands of time are lost to me as I drift out to sea

Dancing on waters vast, but night will not last

So I bid you, adieu! Oh Ocean, I do love you©

Beauty’s Shadows

“Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides.” ~Junichiro Tanizaki

Delicately Spun

“When you look at a piece of delicately spun glass you think of two things: how beautiful it is and how easily it can be broken.” ~Tennessee Williams
