Seascape Through An Open Cottage Door!

Whenever I look at this cottage scene, I am transported to a peaceful place where all it takes to experience the amazing sand and sea, is a little imagination and a deep desire to walk along the beach, to hear the waves lapping against the shore, to find smooth glass and shells that only nature can provide. Come take a look and follow!  

Follow Me...

If thou wouldst dream...follow me...

Discover clouds

That scud across the bluest of blue skies,

Wandering west and east,

Lending life


Of feathery castles in the air.


If thou wouldst dream...follow me...

Uncover shells upon the sand

In which one may hear

Distant yearnings, echoes,

Of the stormy sea,

Pirates shipwrecked

To the north and to the south.


If thou wouldst dream...follow me...

Follow fields

That surge and sway

In swelling waves

Of amber, green, and gold,

Whose stirring whispers

Harbor secret footpaths of the past.


If thou wouldst dream...follow me...

Seek sounds of pleasure

From within the silence

Of a forest woodland,

Then find they speak in tongues

With gentle metaphors

Of love.


  1. ... it reminds me of the flower boxes on the old front porches billowing with begonias ... the door open on a hot summery day ... with lemonade in the cool shade ... Have a beautiful weekend.
