Penelope’s Poems

April 8, 2009


Filed under: poetry — penelopephoebe @ 10:25 am




The sea stretches the

Horizon to infinity

Booming and crashing

Against the cliffs

A seagull’s coarse

Laughter cleaving

The moment

Signalling the


Footsteps in the sand

Lead away

As if set in stone

The wind torments

And tangles

And tastes of a

Different salt

Lachrymose figure




  1. Just love the whole sensation of this poem – a beatifully concise description of land/seascape and mood.

  2. A very powerful poem, Pen. I like the concrete images of sea, seagull, footsteps and the wind, which constitute a vivid picture to express the idea of being alone. Well done!:)Jen
