A bare-legged boy,
tanned, with hair blowing,
stands on a sandy shore.
He wonders about creatures
swimming beneath the milk-green sea.
Against the distant horizon,
long, low patches of islands
stretch like nocturnal animals,
while the warm salt breath of the earth
lifts his vision, rising,
to a cloud-washed sky.

When I read this poem I feel like I am studying a painting in a gallery. the longer I gaze upon it, the more I see. Posted 05/19/2017 08:46 AM
I feel as if the author is trying to say something that we, the audience does not know. I think that it is up to us to truly find it ourselves by looking on the inside! I love this. This poem indirectly speaks to me and I hope it does the same for all of you!!!!!!!!!!
