"I cannot live without books"
--Thomas Jefferson


Fog on the water
Jagged shorelines
Large boulders
Piles of pebbles
A rush of peace.
Face it head on
Soak it up
Lock it in
An image
Of that lichen-covered shore
It’s important
That you take it in
So you can bring it home
With rock-filled pockets
And picture-filled cameras
A memory
Of that depth of peace
Scoop it up
Tuck it in your heart
A fond recollection
Kept
For after the dream is shattered
When you leave it behind

I love visiting Tettagouche State Park on the Lake Superior shore.

"Life is a package that you have to sign for. Yes, it's free. No, there's no guarantee as to what it holds. Open with caution, it's 'FRAGILE'." (I made this up.)

I liked this! It was very descriptive and sweet. I would just say to practice working with varied structure and making your poems longer because I think that yours would be very good. :)

Well you asked, so I'm here. I love this peice. I know the feeling of being in awe of a place that stays with you forever. Another peice of mine is called "Despair Kills Me". It's on the front page of the Fiction/Romance, it's anonymous.
