Salty Vista

Salty essence dripped

Fragrant as he rose from sea

Tanned virility

Ocean sequins’ glint on skin

Smile-lit eyes, heart genuine

Another Place, Time

World corked within glass bottle

Daydream washed ashore

Soul carried on twilight tide

Keepsake vista I adore

Cerulean Bay

Unrequited love

Futile, addictive ~ inspired

Poems, plethora

Lifetime of longing’s passion

Flowed from grief-filled river’s pen

Cerulean bay

Were his eyes she fell into

Drowned and drowned again

Loved, desired, died six decades

For image which vied with God

Nostalgia (#6WSP)


Nostalgia’s rosy lens offers romantic view.


I know this challenge/post is supposed to be only 6 words…but I never hear the word nostalgia that I don’t fall back in time to when Julio Iglesias was a hot recording star (“swoon-worthy”) singing, among other hits, “Nostalgie”.  So I hope you’ll indulge me…I simply had to include it here…with the English lyrics.
