One Single Impression: Borders

From Topsail, April 2011


Dunes
Sea oats
And sand fence
Make borders
The sea
Remakes
With every breath
In every moment.
There are no limits,
No closing off,
No here and there,
Then and now,
Earth and water,
Love and loss,
This world and the one we dream.

There are only shifting sands.

  5. Beautiful, Sandy. This could be my defining poem - Life Everchanging.

    I like your header. The birds and ocean make a border between air and sea.

  13. I love this poem. So true! As we fight to plant our feet...the sand tilts and moves and we end up on our backsides...once again. Ha!

  16. Sandy, I didn't know there was sand fence even though I may have seen some. It looks very similar to snow fence.
    My favorite bit here is "no limits,
    no closing off
    ." This appeals to ones, and my, desire for complete freedom.

  17. Sandy, I was thinking of you and patti when I was writing my first effort that I didn't post. It was about a grammar student complaining that he was bored, writing that he was getting border and border.
    The teacher corrected him by her not saying that he should use boreder instead.

  19. Sandy, those shifting sands push those borders around with time. It is funny how they change especially when we think we have built those borders with stone and they crumble and are rebuilt with sand as wisdom would call for.

  21. Very impressive photo and great poem. If we see the earth from the space, we will find one blue planet without any borders.

  22. So beautifully written Sandy- and so true-"With every breath
    In every moment.
    There are no limits,
    No closing off,
    No here and there,
    Then and now,
    Earth and water,
    Love and loss,
    This world and the one we dream." Those words touch my heart!
