NaPoWriMo: 30 NEW Writing Prompts for National Poetry Month 2011

22. Write a poem that only has five syllables in each line. Give the poem a long title.
We'd sit on the seawall and feel the cool air off the ocean

memories of us
linger in my mind...
Our toes in the sand
the wind in our hair
seagulls in the sky
sun shining brightly...
we ran to the waves
salt on your tan skin
I kiss you so hard
we fall in the waves
laughing at ourselves
you held my hand tight
you fell to one knee
promise forever

I miss you more now
while the sun light fades
alone on the shores
where you still linger

in the seagulls cry
and the soft sea breeze
the sun melts away
in all I see you

In my mind lingers
memories of us....



  1. Wow, just beautiful and I love the wave effect.

  2. This was really beautifully done! I loved the way it was presented too, with the undulating feel of the waves.
