Like A Thousand Diamonds

Like a Thousand Diamonds

 

As my eyes start to adjust I see the shining sun

Twinkling on the water like a thousand diamonds

 

We were off

Headed to the deep sea

 

The crash of the waves against the side of the boat,

The giant splashes of the dolphins jumping

 

And the sound of doors flying open and slamming shut

As people from out on the deck yell for the next person to real in the fish

 

The worn out looks on their faces, and the stressful pulling on the fishing pole

But the fish pulled away and refused to get on the boat

 

Finally…..our faces lit with excitement as people rushed over to pull up the fish

 

After the excitement died down we all felt the exhaustion rushing back to us

It was time to go home

 

After a long trip back, I hop off the boat and slowly rub my sleepy eyes

As I try to open them I see the dim sunset twinkling on the water

Like a thousand diamonds

 

I chose this thing I love  because I love the excitement and fun of this activity.  In this poem I repeated a line from the first stanza and the last stanza.  I always have so much fun doing this activity so I’m glad I could share it.
