On Milford Beach by Nathaniel Coombes

Gentle waves adorn the sparkling shingle
And the sun has its way with the sea
Gentle folk pass by enjoying the warmth
Of early October in the brilliant light
No cares invade the peace of this place
No thoughts destroy the magical stillness
The last visit perhaps unless the weather blesses
And the cold of winter holds back a while
It is enough to sit and wonder at simple pleasure
The joy of tranquility blessing the solitude

About Nathaniel

I am a retired university lecturer (chemistry) and live in Hertfordshire, UK. I have painted in oils, acrylics and watercolours for 25 years. You will find some of my work on my blog. About three years ago I started writing poetry, and more recently I am writing short stories. I would dearly like more followers and also to follow the work of others.

As if he hasn’t already given us a vivid enough picture with his words, there are amazing paintings on Nathaniel’s blog. And don’t forget to support his great flash fiction and poetry. Visit his site to check it all out: nathanielcoombes.wordpress.com
