Seashore Sunset Senses

Sunset at Depoe Bay, Oregon, photo by Vivian Marcin 2018

Breathing in so deeply

Scents of seaweed and crisp air

As gulls seranade

And ocean foam caresses

Sand covered toes

Sunset glistens like gold

Shimmering on waves

That meet rocks and waiting cheek

With a salty kiss goodnight


NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 26

challenge is to write a poem that includes images that engage all five senses. Try to be as concrete and exact as possible with the “feel” of what the poem invites the reader to see, smell, touch, taste and hear

First Pedicure

feet on welcome mat
Today feet

Got royal treatment 

Were massaged

And pampered

They’ve been thru a lot, but

Rewarded today


Thankful to be back walking around on these feet again. It has been 2-1/2 months since my hip surgery and I am doing well. Today was a special treat for my feet and toes. They deserved it! They have done a lot for me over the years! 😊
