melodious dreams






the gentle waves lapping, as dusk settles in,
murmur sweet comforting words,
caressing the tension from day-weary limbs
while steering the soul homewards;
and the wafting wind of scented twilight,
quietly clears the mind,
as moonlight reveals melodious dreams
that tenderly thoughts unwind.

  28. Several summers I recall house-sitting right on Naples beach (Florida) and your scene is a pure replica of those idyllic evenings.

    NEVER would I tire of those special moments, as God talks to us, through every swish of wave-sounds, through every breath of sea breeze.

    Love and PEACE!
