Pier Walk

To walk along  the longest pier

In the world ! Wow one and half miles

Does give us sunny smiles!

Is so beautiful to do

And what a view!

If the water is still

The sun makes it glisten

And listen…

Sometimes it’s peaceful, silence

And then the seagulls

There they circle

Flying high or sitting on the bar!

There is nothing like it

To walk out on the water so far

Be upon the waves

Like Jesus walking on the water..

Have you thought of that?

The simili …

it’s true

Gives you stillness

The realness

Of our world, the earth, the sea

I’ve walked this pier since I was a child

Holding my fathers hand dear

Without a fear

And tasting the candy floss the icecream

The penny arcades, the aquarium… memories …

It’s now just like a dream…

Times travelled so far

And here we are

Now my guide dog Polly walks down with me

Cos you know, I can’t see…

My way so easily these days..

But hey!

The wonderful feeling

Of the water beneath my feet, not getting wet

Is to be held in awesome respect

For this great pier

Of the Victorian era

Will never give way

And I will always see the feeling

Of its awe so great

Perhaps taken for granted I feel

So perhaps you should steal

A moment to walk out there today

In the weather, come what may

And feel the presence of it

Be forever in the hearts of us who know it

It will be there … so walk out on the water with grace my dear friends …

I became interested in poetry and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at https://rosypoems.com
