Lake Superior Shore

August 10, 2012
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
For after the dream is shattered
When you leave it behind

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.

Could you please write a little comment, or rate it? It will take you five secs, and mean a lot to me. I am new here.
