Sand and Sea

The Med was soulful today
But regained a little clarity,
Breathed easy, washed ashore
In a slow determined rhythm
In clear curls of agate green,
With shimmers of light
Where the sun touched her.

During the last storm
When she jumped her banks of sand,
Ignored her boundaries, threw her bed
All over the road and sidewalks,
Medville was not pleased.

Today she was pushed back,
The sand collected in piles
And returned to her bed.
The Med was told stay there,
Be calm, behave, do as you are told.

But the sea is the sea.
She dances and cries when she wants
She will not laugh and sing
If she can’t be the sea.

She will rebel again.

    What a nice surprise to hear a reading! I’m glad you’ve branched out.

    What method do you use for recording? Your diction is good, as is the timing. It’s nice to hear your voice reading your words just the way you meant them. You’ll be doing more, I hope.

      Thank you! I used the built in recording device in my HP laptop, which gives me a .wma file but I converted into an MP3 file with Freemake Audio Converter. You know it has to be fairly basic considering my IT skills 😉

      Yes, I think I will do more recording. It’s fun. Smiling.

        That’s pretty well how I do it. I have a headset with a boom mic and a small recorder, which makes a .wma file. I convert it to OGG, but I run it through the Audacity editor first to tidy it up.

        Glad you’re having fun.-)

    I think I want to stay close to the sea. You seem to give it such a life of its own that is quite magnificent.
