Here the winning poem:

1 "Ocean Odyssey" by Amy Pacini (USA)

 

Traversing the barren beach

I search for solitude and tranquility

Eager to escape from the cacophony of life

I discover my aquatic sanctuary.

 

The cascading turquoise waves ebb and flow to joyfully greet the serene seashore

Cackling seagulls soar the cerulean sky

Before swooping down and landing on their familiar surfing ground.

 

I can feel the silky sensation of ivory pearl sand

As it gently caresses my sun-dappled skin.

 

The rising sunset reflects its pinkish-red hues along the hopeful horizon

As I saunter along the balmy beach

Awesomely amazed at the tantalizing tidal treasures

Embedded in the soft ribboned and rippled sand.

 

Intricately designed seashells and sand dollars

Smoothly textured stones and shiny sea glass enchantingly emerge.

 

I watch beach critters in utter fascination

As they collectively creep along the coastal carpet

Farther down the shore, I spot sea horses, urchins, and crabs galore.

 

Later I nautically nap in my teal lounge chair floppily topped with a flamingo pink straw hat

As beaming sunlit rays radiantly warm my reposeful soul

When I awake, it's time for a refreshing blueberry swirl ice cream cone and game of Frisbee.

 

Oh how I wish to stay permanently nestled in such breathtakingly beautiful beach bliss

It has become my lifelong song to be in a paradisial place where I belovedly belong

I have discovered sublime serendipity on this mesmerizing maritime ocean odyssey.

 

 

More information during the next days.

Enjoy.

Ending December with a poem

talesforlove

Today we share a poem by Maria Coquemala. The poem is translated from Portuguese into English and we also share the contact of the publishing firm, Porto de Lenha with e-mail: editora@portodelenha.com.br, who edited her most recent work “Assim caminhamos” something like “This is how we walk”. Eventually it is a good opportunity for those who would like to learn Portuguese as it is a beautiful and simple approach to poetry.

 

Infinity

 

I have the age of all time.

I have lived hundreds of different lives.

I was a seaweed dividing, multiplying.

I was a monkey jumping among the trees,

rocked me with the music of the wind

in the vines of the ancient forest.

I was dragged into the cave by a Darwinian link.

I was a slave, I was a queen, I was a lover.

            I am the one who cried the most painful tears,

            when forever the ones I loved left.

           The Mozart's Requiem brings them back.

           Nostalgia takes me to old places

           from childhood and adolescence, to marriage, to children,

          to friends, relatives and brothers,

          in forever unforgettable moments.

Heartache and joy, hope and frustration

succeed each other alternating in time.

I am the spirit that does not die.

I am the one that was, is and will be forever.

Oceans of Spring

talesforlove

In 2018 this poem was born...

 

Claire O' C. (Cork - Ireland) - “Piano Ocean”

 

If it is the voice of cackled caves,
Ocean sworn and faded letters,
The East Beast the crown of the peek,
Watch the dead they are asleep,
Forge the paths of snow and ice,
Watch the fallen in souls dispatched,
Painted by the drunk and broken,
Played piano on a silver ocean.

 

Enjoy.
