NaPoWriMo ~ Day 5

The prompt for today at NaPoWriMo  is to write a poem about a part of the natural world  (place, animal, or plant ) which you have personally had a good bit of experience with.

Hunting Island

Oh how I remember the snow white sands from my childhood

Summer after summer we would go to the shore to play and relax

Collecting shells, buckets of sand dollars lay upon the beach

Watching dolphins gliding through the water and sharks lurking nearby

Mom and dad collecting oysters as I built large sandcastles

For a few years grandpa came with us, making it more magical for me

We would get up early and head out across the windy dunes to fly a kite

Those summers were among the happiest of my childhood, and I shall never forget

That magic is a feeling in the heart and heaven on earth exists
