Tenerife Sea (poem)

Tenerife Sea

I am the sand spread
throughout the shores
of the Tenerife Sea …
patiently waiting to
hear the tread of
your shoes on me …
they say hope
keeps the
world running …
similarly the hope
of seeing you someday
keeps me burning …

I wish you bring your feet
soon to me my beloved
before I burn to glass …
I will be looking for you
on these vessels
which from here everyday pass

I hope you like my work and if you do please leave a comment, my website is self-hosted so the regular like button and some features are missing, until you leave me words I won’t know if you liked my poetry, so please, but only if you are compelled by my words to. Welcome to my world and I hope to see you again. Thank you.

P.S. I have told you in one of my recent posts that I will be putting pictures of my art journal(not really great) here along with the posts and so I have here, only poetry is not art enough to me I’ve discovered. I will hopefully get better at this journaling with a little practice and trial and error so please bear with me, thank you.
