About my trip to Dingle

personal poem

It was my dream to go
to the worlds most beautiful place
to leave all my life aside
take a break from the hectic race
and so I reached heaven
for I do not know a better word
every sadness I had in me
was taken away and cured
I was mesmerized by my eyes
and words failed to form in my head
all that was reflected in my mind
was how beautiful this all was instead
blue skies over the head
blue seas beneath the feet
a thin line drawn where
the two collide and meet
a calm that spreads
when the passing wind blows
a serene peace comes
when the warm sun glows
in the midst of a crowd
yet so far away,
alone no distractions today
no emails, no phones
just a lazy afternoon
hop, skip, jump and play
watch over the sky
so happy, so calm, so gay!
it felt like I should never leave
pack my bags and stay here
such amazing beauty shone
in all the things everywhere!!!
of dolphins and myths many
enchanted as I became aware
all I did was watch the sea
fix my eyes in a trance like stare
when the seagulls soared above
it felt like a forgotten call to me
to join them, fly, out into the sky
break the shackles, and be free
and so with a heavy heart
as I felt a longing pain…
when we started to turn back
the sky cried out in rain!
