A Summer Seaside Sonnet

Monday 15 July 2013 at 7:29 pm.

As my wife Norma and I were sunbathing on Mustang Island beach near Port Aransas, Texas on 14 Jul 93, the sun was shining brightly at 10:30 a.m. and the thin of the moon was briefly visible directly above us.  The sonnet below was my immediate response to this scenario.

So there you have it – I’m happy to share it with you.  I’m saddened that I no longer possess the gift of poetry that crept into my mind in the early 90’s along with the pain that has prettily permanently plagued my physical body ever since.  But I still stealthily also align myself to alliterations.


The stars are set

And silent.

Suddenly the sun starkly strikes

The moon’s silver sliver.

And this sinner-saint’s soul

Is soothed,

While sunning on a sandy sea shore,

As sea gulls and sandpipers

Seek their succor.

By the Spirit his soul serenely sings a song,

Thanking his Sovereign

For the Savior,

And His stalwart, heaven-sent

Salvation and sustenance!
