Aloha Summerland

Walking barefoot on the shore
Hypnotized by the ocean roaring
Thoughts of you drifting in and out
Never fails to calm me down

I still see your eyes when light hits the water
And I've never seen a color so beautiful
So blue, ocean blue

I keep moving to the distant sounds
And visions of you drifting in and out
Clouds mixin' with the sand and the sea
Sounds get carried on the ocean breeze

I still hear your voice from across the horizon
And wasn't that you walking into the shadows?

In time I'll believe it was just an illusion
In time I'll believe it was only a dream

Created for a challenge at Sunday Postcard Art.  The theme this week was 'labels.'  So, I took a word from a vintage label and allowed it to inspire me.  The word 'summerland' came from the vintage ad below!

  1. Wow I love your retro beach babes! What a great collage. Fun old label too. And beautiful words. thanks so much for playing along this week - I'm glad you had fun!

  2. What a beautiful and terrible rhythm, here, a waking from a dream, or dreaming in the wake.

  3. Your poem evokes summer to the ocean blue the Okanagan, where I grew up, there is a cute little lakeside village called Summerland, full of poplar trees and weeping willow.
