In the Shadows

Maine and More 164

When the sun is on the other side,

the rocks cast a shadow,

and I notice you again,

with the background of the waves,

I will never forget,

your face in the wind,

on this rugged coast,

tenderness, and beauty, in the rocks,

pine trees surrounding the queen,

royalty of gentleness,

with a walking stick,

and a smile.

I know it’s time to give in,

no more hiking.

Did you know you had red in your hair?

Wait! Another picture, turn to the side,

yes hold that,


I love the way the shadows,

play with your color, your skin.

You are the most beautiful scenery,

I have ever seen.

Blessings to everyone and peace!

      1. It is a wonderful thing Nico; this is how a marriage should be! Loving each other and inspiring each other. What’s more precious than a husband writing a love poem to his wife!!! 🙂

    1. Mary your encouraging words mean alot. Yes she is the love of my life! I often tell her that and as you said she is my inspiration. Thank you my friend! Peace and blessings to you.
