Am I There Yet?

Today I should be starting my new life in the UK. Cyprus was in its high 30c+ (80+), when we left, and I am certain I won’t be experiencing that kind of heat, here in the coastal town of, Dovercourt, near  Harwich.

See images here.

This is a poem I wrote as a tribute to my seaside birth-town:

Harwich, Essex, England

Stormy shores and waves,
Rock pools, fish and caves,
Salty lips and sandy toes,
The beach is where my heart goes.

Born near water,
A sailor’s daughter,
Romantic walks, starlit night,
Young lover’s delight.

Seaweed crown with shells,
Suntan lotion smells,
Wispy hair and sticky hand,
A castle for a princess made of sand.

Beachcombing days,
A summertime haze,
Rippling crests of foam,
Memories of my childhood home.

I will be back soon, I just need a few days to clear my head. Author interviews are scheduled, so please make them all welcome.

    Welcome home, Glynis! Hope you are settling back in and Old Blighty is as you remembered. Your poem is lovely and makes me want to head off to the coast. Might need my brolly today, though!
