Poem: Pillars of Blue

 Poem: Pillars of Blue

Bright ocean view,
From a rocky pew.

Dancing foamy air,
We sit as a pair. 

Holding hands into the night,
Until the horizon is out of sight. 

Poems are short stories that express a single thought or idea. This poem discusses the simplest things in life and their importance. We sometimes forget how life is only a flash in the greater universe. Many of the things we chase seem so important but are useless at the end of the day. 

I have met many people who have maxed out their credit cards, bought huge houses they didn't need, clothing they couldn't afford, and jewelry that decorates their outward beauty. Even though these items enhance our lives  they are not truly part of our very existence as a people. The best things in life are free.
