Poetry by: Elizabeth GrochanPhotography By: Christina Taylor Broken Shutter PhotographyMusings about life and the nature that surrounds it

Nature of Life

How did I end up here? Sinking into the wet sandOnce a part of a whole A protective layer to withstand

Only a small piece Floating through the sea Deposited by tides and waves Washing up on shore empty Laying here beyond the foam I thought my purpose was through What else could be left for me But then I was found by you

Persona Poem

Sitting on the Sand

Gazing into the unknown

Contemplating life

Senryu Poem

What is the opposite of an ending?

How about a new beginning?

The time to start anew

Where you can choose to be you

Setting out on a new Journey

Where you can choose to be happy

Set out on your pathway

And Embark on your new TodayOpposite Poem

I wonder what untold stories you hold Lives that have been changed within your thresholdLovers who sat embraced in your presence Children accompanied by their parentsSecrets shared in confidence People asking for forgiveness Tears shed in pain or sorrow Worried what will come of tomorrowHappiness and joy without a care Smiles and laughter that rings in the airI wonder what untold stories are left to unfold Right there within your thresholdCouplet

The ties that bind us

In our relationships

Always Intertwined

Senryu Poem

Aquatic wonderBlossoming new lifePurity in its dainty beauty Poised on top of calming waterAquatic wonderSurrounding each petaled treasureSturdy Green Thrones Poised on top of calming waterAquatic wonderNeither can exist without the otherBeauty and strength working togetherPoised on top of calming water

Standing at the edge of tomorrowToday follow your dreamsThe past, a reflection, an echoStanding at the edge of tomorrowThe future can be scary I knowBut let your heart lead and you followStanding at the edge of tomorrowToday follow your dreams

Triolet Poem

Love is a Mosaic Rose Filled with pleasure and sorrow

Thorns pricking those in its clutch Pain can spring with a simple touch

Majestic blooming their only duty Petals shine in silent beauty

Each layer so soft and pretty Within each fold there is a story

Many wonder if the pleasure outweighs the pain

I say love is the only worthy campaign
