A Room With A View

by Rachel RTVW

From my room with a view I see
Sapphire waves of coming tide
Wispy clouds floating by
As day will soon subside

Grains of sand return
To an ocean vast
As the sun sinks east
Shadows now are cast

Gazing out to the horizon
Anticipating night
Starry eyes awaiting
Moon to cast her light

Being one with nature
Soothing me with care
Never will she leave me
For mother's always there

*Written for an RTVW contest

I love nature poems, but it's not often I find one I actually enjoy. This one on the other hand was amazing, such a deep meaning and the words were very powerful. Mother nature will always be there...excellent job 5/5

`I loved how you started it out like you were actually looking out a window, because it puts the reader in your exact position and it makes me picture this so perfectly. This description was amazing. I couldn't have worded it better than you did. The words that you used to describe this view was amazing. So vivid!

Overall, such a beautiful write. One that you could picture so vividly, and when you look at the picture it's exactly what I imagined in my mind. Wonderfully written. This poem was amazing, you definatly have your way with words! 5/5

Poetry is great and springs up from the most unlikely places, imagery for instance. A picture paints a thousand words, but best of all when they are crafted such as yours here.

I love the sapphire reference and the passage of time, form sunset to moon rise, possibly a reference to the enduring love given freely by a mother.

Great piece :)
