Time Reveals The Truth November 6, 2011

Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Poetry, Travel & Leisure.

Evangelist knocks
“Would you like to know the truth?’
Of course!  Don’t we all?

Winter waves unfurl
Pounding the rocky shoreline
With icy crystals

Wind whipping up waves
Amid Florida daydreams
Holmes Beach for Christmas?


Vacation Homes Search
Condo, Townhouse or Villa?
Who cares . . . if it’s warm!

Impatient to leave
We check the weather report
Smiling at the temps

As E.T.D. nears
We’re too excited to sleep
Wish we were there now


Finally . . . we’re off!
Smiles and soaring spirits
Greet the rising temps

St. Armand’s Circle
Posh people push pampered pups
Carols fill the air

South Beach Ferry glides
through inter-coastal waters
while passengers smile


Walking on Gulf sands
Frees my imagination
Let’s extend our stay!

Two thousand eight ends
With midnight fireworks, and
Dancing on the beach

Waves greet the New Year
Excitement swirls through the air
The future is next!


Square pegs and round holes
Art Shows and Eco Expos
Time reveals the truth

Aah . . . that’s better!

Thanks. Sidey’s theme this weekend, Anticipation, made me do a bit of time traveling. 😀

Was this the story of how you ended up moving to Florida?

nrhatch - November 6, 2011

Yes . . . the beginning. It all started with a daydream . . . that ended in my dreams coming true.

3. Lisa Wields Words - November 6, 2011

Very nice.

Very nice Beach Girl 🙂

Thanks, Honky Cat! 😀

The title caught my eye right away … I seem to be discovering (or maybe it is accepting) many truths from the past lately. Thanks, this was lovely.

nrhatch - November 6, 2011

We can’t always see the distant shore . . . yet with anticipation’s wind filling our sails, we soar.

6. kateshrewsday - November 6, 2011

What a transformation: I could do with something similar 😀

nrhatch - November 6, 2011

At times, life is nothing short of magical. 😎

7. Three Well Beings - November 6, 2011

How beautiful! A daydream acted upon? Imagine! Debra

nrhatch - November 7, 2011

I asked myself what I would do if I only had a short time to live.
Answer: Move to Florida.

Best move we ever made. 😀

8. theonlycin - November 7, 2011

Just fabulous, Nancy 😀

nrhatch - November 7, 2011

Thanks, Cin. We live forward . . . but with a backward glance we can measure the distance we’ve traveled. 😎

9. bluebee - November 7, 2011

Happy holidays and happy life shine through in your writing, Nancy 😀

nrhatch - November 7, 2011

Thanks, bluebee! I strive for happy.

10. ElizOF - November 7, 2011

Time does reveal everything… Thank you for the beautiful poem. 🙂

nrhatch - November 7, 2011

Thanks, E! It was fun taking a retrospective glance to see how we got from THERE to HERE. 😀

11. Tilly Bud - November 7, 2011

I really enjoyed this, Nancy. For me, it’s your best yet.

nrhatch - November 7, 2011

Thanks, Tilly. Happiness peeking through the retrospective glance at fulfilled anticipation. 😀

12. Just A Smidgen - November 7, 2011

You are right, life is magical. And blogs like yours remind us of this!

nrhatch - November 7, 2011

Thanks, JAS. Sometimes clouds obscure the magic from view. When that happens, we must open our eyes a bit wider. 😯

A daydream? Hmmm Then it’s not too late for me to end up at the beach on a farm with a cowboy?!

nrhatch - November 8, 2011

A beach farm with a cowboy? What about the shelter for abandoned animals . . . or is that AFTER the honeymoon? 😉

cuhome - November 8, 2011

Hm. Can you tell me where this farm on a beach with a cowboy is? ☺

cuhome - November 8, 2011

Are you farming fish?

nrhatch - November 8, 2011

Maybe they’ll farm oysters . . . for pearls! 😀

14. souldipper - November 8, 2011

I agree, Nancy…time really is a friend. It bears the truth well! Great poem – even with the pompous people pushing pudgy puppies. Oh no…that’s not what you said. That was what I thought!

Thank god for square pegs that keep folks from thinking there is only round.

nrhatch - November 8, 2011

Pampered pups ~> pudgie puppies . . . yup!
But . . . some of the pups were tiny teacups
Their saucers? Carriages . . . to keep them up
And untrampled by busy holiday shoppers. 😉

nrhatch - November 8, 2011

Moving here has exceeded our expectations. 😎

16. Team Oyeniyi - November 9, 2011


Sand, sea, a shell………….. my kinda place…………..

nrhatch - November 9, 2011

I waited “half” my life to live here because I refused to acknowledge what I really wanted . . . to live where it’s warm. I regret that I didn’t make the leap earlier in life.
