Poem Idea - Beacons and Tethers

lighthouse-pier-yc-300x225

On the border of sand and water…looking for the bright beacon to lead us to shore. Humans have braved across dangerous waters to reach yet another shore. We look for reasons to seek adventure in order to reach something familiar. Long wooden planks connect our tethering to the known…the shore. Whereas, the beacon allows us an immediate comfort in our initial adventurous spirit. The light shines brighter at some of the darkest times during the nightly moments.

What tethers you to the familiar? What or who do you trust as your beacon? Pull the emotions and connect the two. Be creative and look for symbols and intensity within the photo to paint you own picture in words…Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
