Time Slips As Sea And Sand Beseech ~ Decima No. 46

Time Slips As Sea And Sand Beseech

Sinking low, reduced to a glow

Hues pink, in the eyes come to dance

Bridging the heavens, wondrous trance.

Harmonious, endless, the flow,

Stories untold hidden below.

Tower of rocks for the sky reach,

A barrier caressing the beach.

Golden drops where sun’s heat is caught

And lost no more wood gnarled with knot.

Time slips as sea and sand beseech.

The photograph is of an oil painting of mine. I painted it ages ago (or so it seems), but it remains one of my favorites. I used it as inspiration to write this poem.

This poem was written in response to Ronovan Writes Decima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 46: KNOT in the D rhyme line. We could also make a link between this Decima and the Haiku Challenge Prompt using the words SLIP and TIME.

Welcome new friends. I'm Heather, a homeschooling mama raising three children alongside my husband. I love to walk our two dogs, photograph nature, and write poetry. As a family, we love reading together, creating art, sports and all things nature. We also enjoy sharing our learning experiences with friends and creating co-op opportunities. I enjoy writing about our homeschool adventures, as well as nature and sharing recipes. My heart is grateful for my family, our homeschool, our friends and homeschool community, as well as the nature around us. In addition to following my blog, you can find me on Facebook at Home Study from the Grateful Heart.
