Virginia & Outer Banks 2013The North Carolina Outer Banks (OBX) at Duck — Images by kenne

The Outer Banks, North Carolina
Divide the ocean and the bay
Inviting, is this string of islands
Vacationers to come and play

Two hundred miles of pristine beaches
As far as any eye can see
Morning brings the perfect sunrise
On this land along the sea

The light house on Cape Hatteras
Guided many ships at night
The beaches outside Kitty Hawk
Saw the very first manned flight

The home to herds of feral ponies
Where the pirate Blackbeard died
English settled long ago
Still to this day they do reside

The climate always feels like summer
All along this eastern shore
Once you stop here for a visit
We know that you’ll come back for more

Revisiting The Outer Banks Of North Carolina — To Make Soft . . .   Leave a comment

Joy braving the wind and cold temperatures.

To Make Soft . . .

words are nothing
feelings are everything
struggling to share feelings
placing petitions of desire
to the door of your heart
shut not the door
love will break the heart
scorn not what we do
looking for peace of mind
truth will set us free
explaining not what is real
to complicated to follow
knowing not our time to go
lifetime is no time at all

This is a poem I wrote five years ago when we were on the Outer Banks of North Carolina (April, 2008). In a few weeks we will return for another brief visit and in Virginia — hopeful the weather will be better.
