Eternity’s Grip
For love.
Eternity waits.
Within the palm
a hand.
Watching the walls
around my sand castle
give in  to your surf.
I wait with the ocean
to see if the tide
returns  a hand print.
Time doesn't hesitate
even one breath.
Was that touch
from the heart?

Make no mistake!


Make no mistake!
Was that touch
from the heart?
Time doesn't hesitate
even one breath.
I wait with the ocean
 to see if the tide
 returns a hand print.
Watching the walls
around my sand castle
give in  to your surf.
Within the palm
a hand.

Eternity waits.

For love.

Author's Notes:
For the love of writing poetry.
And the love shown in encouraging me always to write.
To try even something new.
Thank you Pamela.
A high five for you
in a hand print.

You always write so beautiful.... A pleasure indeed..

 The lady is so talented no-one holds a candle to her...

Dan, incredible job here!  This poem wouldn't have been as meaningful... nor as touching if the verses were not repeated.  Wonderful!  I love the referenced to sand...such a lovely picture of "transient".  The Oriental have as part of their definition of beauty...that which is transient.  So true...

Dan, this is beautiful. Filled with such longing and hope. Great job with the form.
Also, I like the nod to Pamela. She is a sweetheart and does encourage--most appreciated.
