Hello, lovely fellow bloggers!
I know Wednesday is usually when I take a Wander, but instead I’ve decided to take a break.
I’ve been blogging for the past four years, written over 700 posts, and made some wonderful friends along the way. However, I have a few things I need to focus on at the moment, which mean I’ve not been able to be as present in the blogging world as I’d like to be.
So I’m going to take a break.
I’ll still pop in and out when I can, just to see you all, but won’t be writing posts on a regular basis (if at all). It’s (probably) not forever, just for now.
Thank you all for being so lovely!
It’s another #writephoto challenge from Sue Vincent, and this week our prompt is this evocative photo of sunset over the ocean. There seemed to be something melancholy about the image – perhaps it’s the combination of the obelisk and the setting sun. This is the poem that came to me:
I wait upon the lonely shore
I wait for boats that come no more
Where water meets stone
Where earth meets sky
I watch the long years passing by
No one remembers when I came
They do not even know my name
Yet still I wait
Yet still I stare
In hope that I might see you there
As darkness ends another day
And golden shimmers slide away
I cry out loud
To an uncaring sea
‘Come back to me, come back to me.’
