Sea Glass Thoughts

Lake Michigan 1

Lake Michigan 1 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

we walked along the shore

sifting our thoughts in and out of the waves

as the sand warmed our feet between our toes

with the cold water of Lake Michigan cleansing us of guilt

we walked along the shore

dismissing the cares that led us to the gloomy caves

forgetting the misunderstandings of our foes

allowing the mistakes of our lives to wilt

we walked along the shore

gingerly reaching for the green-blue sea glass shaves

hoping to carry a bit of the beach to the home coves

adding renewal courageously to our inner quilt

    I couldn’t get the music- will try again later. Love the poem. Reminds me of my ‘Beach’ poem. What kind of poem is this, I notice certain phrases are repeated. Seems like i read similar one on #Friday Fictioneers” (same form, I mean)
