landlocked seafarer

landlocked seafarer

like soft ocean waves, tree
leaves sing on windy days
‘neath a blue canopy
where the sun’s warm kisses
stir seashore memories,
a place far from the clay
where sand yields to the sea,
come away, come away,
imagine it with me

Happy May! – A little magic is appropriate for the month of May! I am exploring the possibilities of the Magic 9 poem – This 9-line poem doesn’t have any rules as far as meter or subject matter–just a rhyme scheme: abacadaba. (Or abracadabra with the r’s removed…though I may need to create my own variation for fun, with a refrain line inserted for the r’s. Stay tuned!)
