Poetry by James Wadman


I saw the beach on which stood
from the sands of my own shore.
I read your story from stars in the sky
and in that one light
shining in diamond-yellow
was the you I had known before.

And though I followed the sunset
I could not be by your side.
I called out above the crashing waves
so that just one bird
flying in the night
could bring you my good-bye.

My melody in her beak, away she flew
hoping to find her way to you
but no, a bird cannot fly
to the shores of an endless sea
no, a bird cannot fly
a lost life back to me.

    Beautiful. I was touched by this poem of yours.
    Thank you for following my blog and leading me to your lovely words and images.
    I am curious to learn which images are your personal artwork.

    Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed it. The images are usually mine, my brother’s, or taken from unsplash (royalty-free stock photographs). I generally don’t label them because I feel like captions take away from the images.
