Click here to hear the poet read his words:

horseshoe bay

she does not listen to my voice
she can’t tell my soul is crying
she laughs and skips in carefree joy
through the Valley of the Giants

her heart is full of happiness
mine broke when she said no
to her life is an orchestra
playing tunes in Songbird Meadow

new flames consume this white flawed fool
compared to her all fires turn pale
her steps have prints like angels’ feet
she leaves no trace on Ladyfern Trail

how can this be I ask myself
why is the sunshine always dark
she lights her way with just a smile
she brightly glows in Lighthouse Park

an artist who can paint a dream
a poet with no words to say
she colours the Pacific waves
but I am drowned in Horseshoe Bay

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
