Bermuda mesmerizes.
Breeze ruffles tall grass,
erases footsteps.

Timeworn calcarenites protrude,
seaside sentinels
revealed in low tide glory.

I stand gazing.
And somehow
in this raw natural place,

understanding dawns.
You are with me,
my forever love.

Written for dVerse, the virtual pub for poets, where today it’s OLN….Open Link Night. Post any one poem of your choice. Yes, we are in Bermuda, until April 6th. Photos from Tobacco Bay, one of our favorite places here, about a 10 minute walk from our rental in St. George. Bermuda never disappoints!

      …and the water really is this beautiful. Photos not doctored at all.

    Oh, lovely place. The description of “seaside sentinels” is wonderful and also leaves me to wonder just enough just who is “understanding dawns”, you the visitor, or the ones ever standing watch.

    I can be true. When least expected, you appear, and stand with me. Beautiful poem!

    What a beautiful spot and gorgeous photos. I like the understanding of the dawn…perhaps the dawn of creation??

    Bermuda sounds stupendous! Anywhere the footsteps get erased is good with me. Nice to place to make love in the tall grasses.
