New Beginning

Strolling down the beach of cloudy yesterdays.
The rising sun drags a new day behind it.
And with it hope for a better tomorrow.
Waves crash onto the golden beach
spewing out chunks of sunken relationships
Here I have found a safe Place
A vantage point, from where I can wave goodbye

    This was the highlight for me.

    Great lines, and wonderfully fresh metaphors and imagery. A safe place to wave goodbye, I think says it all about how sometime we don’t leave things behind until we are sure we would be ok without that which we want to leave behind.

  10. Nice word painting, Richard. There is a touch of nostalgia to this one.
