Crystal Clear Shallows – A Poem by Ivor Steven

Capture

Submitted by Ivor Steven

Sitting here upon golden sand
Looking toward the blue horizon
I see two distinct lines
Hues in a morning rainbow
Dropping to where the bay meets the sky
Rippling like loose poetry pages
Across whispering foamy seas
Tumbling along on an easterly sea-breeze
Gently caressing the softened shoreline
Trickling amongst crystal clear shallows
Shimmering on a diamond mirror
Settling here upon a golden pond
