Momentary Pause

Momentary Pause

Walking on the beach
in Northern Queensland
my footprints the only ones
to mar the endless sand
the gentle ebb and flow
of the morning swell
rose and fell... rose and fell
in a soothing rhyme
that momentarily
the passage of time...


  1. wow, this brings back an awesome memory of my trip to Cairnes. I went alone, rented a car, and took a drive up the coast to see the rain forest. I stopped at a desserted beach along the way. it's dunes were covered with what looked like purple primrose, and it was the time of the year that the box jelly fish were along the beaches, so no one was swimming. it was just me, the sand, and purple flowers.

    your poem oozes with the peacefulness I felt that day :D

  2. Thank you so much for visiting me here dear... no one does... I'm glad my write brought back peaceful memories...that day of yours sounds wonderful!
