Boardwalk



Boardwalk


Ocean breeze
holding its breath

as it reaches
the man-made walk
assaulted by the civilized world.

Bright lights-
shock to the senses

blinding one to the beauty,
invasion of sea and sky.

One must look to the depths
to find God in such a place,

so obscured by neon and noise
most often, he goes unnoticed.

  1. Lovely, Lisa ... I do like natural habitats, but when they become commercialized and modernized, they do lose something. This is so well expressed :)

  4. Yes, Lisa, sometimes God is hard to find unless a person REALLY looks!! Your poem has an important message.

  5. That's when we have to work hard to lift our eyes above the noise and contemplate the sky!

  8. This makes me think of my trips to the beach as a child, I always found the boardwalks rather imposing and loud.
