Memories of Love

by Milly Hayward   May 5, 2019

Crash of sea against the shore
reminds me of times gone by
Seagulls spinning as they soar
amongst clouds in a deep blue sky

Gentle breeze across my face
like a lovers brief caress
Leaving just a tiny trace
of that time when I said yes

Breath seaweed in like perfume
for it carries home the sea
Sand the carpet for your room
that place I so longed to be

A tiny piece of heaven
with your hands entwined with mine
That day in sunny Devon
our love became divine.

    Miss Milly,

    Such a lovely piece, showing your emotions- using your senses to portray your emotions. Tells me so much about your love for Devon, and good reason.
    a nicely penned rhyming beauty, M :)x

      Thank you Michael. That Devon beach is a special place because as teenagers we spent a lot of time by the sea and that beach is where my husband proposed to me :) x

      Thank you Dagmar. There is something quite beautiful about the sea no matter where you are in the world. I grew up by the sea and I hope one day to return to it. Hugs and much love Milly x
