~ BEAUTY AN ENDLESS SEA ~

~ BEAUTY AN ENDLESS SEA ~

'Tis from my Love for beauty
The endless sea
Beckons me
And drenches my heart
In Love's vastness...

This sea is yours and mine
Like feathers
Scattered
By the beauty within the wind
Of an endless sea
For oft times
When I lay in fields of green
The breeze
Speaks to my soul
And a gentle,
Descending, feather,
From across the seasons
Of my life
Tickles my praise of beauty
Through memories
Of original taste
Original smell
And the childlike
Wonder
In simply touching things
Recognizing their light
Then cemented
Irrevocable 
Grows my Love of beauty
So pristine
In its holy state
Where all things
So very alive
Can never die
And beauty,
An endless,
Sea...

Hey T...through seasons and experiences, our memories become a beautiful evolution representing our life...and the beautiful experiences stand out that we want to hold onto....like the innocence of childhood.  I love the imagery you have created with original phrasing...which you are such a  pro at.  Very beautiful...I had to pin it. xo Love n Hugs, C

Thank you CHERIE!!!.... Yes, this write has everything to do with imagery....... when you're dealing with the varietal essence of a word like "Beauty" it becomes necessary to use flourishes with which to compel the readers ear....... You are such an astute reader/commenter that it makes that much for fun to write and post!!..... I'm blessed to have you in my life!!........thanx so much for EVERYTHING sweetheart!!.... hugs-n-kisses!!.......T xo : )

What a beautiful poem! I truly enjoyed that. Your imagery was fantastic, and very moving. Great write. 
And I loved that picture, too. I love the way the sailboat reflects so beautifully from the sun. 

Great job,

Yes MARION!!..... your estimation is precise..... Appreciation & Thankfulness is the underlying intent.... Beauty and the appreciation of it is something I was taught to love by Ralph Waldo Emerson and his work on the subject matter!!......thanx for this dear poet sister!!..... Peace......T xo. : )

My Dear Tony,

In my next life, when I am in high school studying American Literature, and the great poets of the early 21st Century, I know that we will be delving into the works of the remarkable Tony Taylor!  

Chills run down my spine
His great odes enter my heart
Captivate my Soul

Love you Bro,
Larry xxx

I also love your Transcendental/Aesthetic works Tony.
This one creates very nice imagery and is just the right
blend of Eloquent, and colloquial to appeal to many if
not all crowds. (at least in my humble opinion.)

If I'm ever half the poet you are i can die happy.
