Rest Assured


REST ASSUREDDescription unavailable

held by palms
on either end

lifted spirits while
lightening the load
of life’s burdens;

endless sight
of blue
filled my eyes,

scent of salt air
and plumeria
lingered as

fingers skimmed
water’s surface
and the gentle sway

fell still;
each heap of
worry was

with flecks
of sand and sun

P. Wanken


Inspired by The Sunday Whirl’s Prompt #84: still, scent, sight, fell, fleck, sway, load, heap, skimmed, held, end, and fill; and posted on Day #24 for the “100 Days of Fall/Winter 2012” challenge.


  1. Funny how that balance thing works, ain’t it? Pretty much all of last year was cancelled out by a week on a Bahamas beach in February.
