Day 22, NaPoWriMo


Day 22, NaPoWriMo Write a “pastoral” poem. Traditionally, pastoral poems involved various shepherdesses and shepherds talking about love and fields, but yours can really just be a poem that engages with nature.

Breakers Hotel

“Palm Beach Pastoral”

We’ll meet, my darling, by the shim`ring sea.

We’ll dip our toes into a surf sublime.

And in the afterglow, a cup of tea

as floating gulls will flap their wings to dine.

We’ll dine on caviar before we meet,

amidst the palms, their social gathering.

The palms will sway and dance their hula greet

while nature’s beams upon our ballroom gleam.

Was ever sunlit dance so lush as this

as rustling of my silks spin ‘cross the floor?

Was ever world so brightly kissed

with moonlight and such glamor to adore?

So, take my hand, we’ll waltz across this floor

to all of nature’s thrills; still wanting more.
