 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.

The weather will be in the mid 60's as the sun makes it way past the horizon. The smell of the ocean seaweed and the sound of the gulls will be apparent as the sun pulls its cover for one more night. To commemorate the event I like to write poems or paint pictures. I believe it is important to keep in touch with one's artistic side and expression of life to ensure that we stay grounded to some of the more importa
