"Isles of Shoals, the Eternal Sound of the Sea." (Part 2)
These islands have lodged many artists, poets, writers, photographers, fine arts painters, important and average folks throughout the time. They come around for a personal retreat, conference, or a memorable visit. I would love to visit these islands one day, in order to gather deep inspirations for my poetry. It will certainly be a memorable experience for me.
Star Island becomes a lifelong tradition for many folks who come back, year after year, to experience the island magic with their families, generation to generation. Once you've come, you'll remember Star for a lifetime. The cry of the gulls, the pristine beauty, the history behind its walls, will stay with you long after you return home. Star Island is one of the rocky, wind-swept Isles of Shoals, located off the coast of Rye, New Hampshire. For over 100 years, summers here have provided individuals and families with a welcome respite from their busy mainland lives. Star Island Corporation is a nonprofit organization which maintains the island and its facilities, and provides hospitality services for visitors. These are the Isles of Shoals, and this is the rugged and rustic Star Island, owned and operated since 1915 by the Star Island Corporation to provide religious and educational retreat for those attending weekly conferences. Hop on a boat from Rye Harbor, Portsmouth or Newburyport for a day trip, and you'll soon find yourself in Gosport Harbor, where the Isles of Shoals offer a glimpse of life as it was in the 19th Century. Here you can leave 21st Century technology and demands behind as time stands still. Go back in time...
Looking at the sea, at the stars in the moonlight, I am now blessed with a few lines from my heart.
"Painting Dreams." (Poem)
See the children how they build sandcastles...
That is one way how to build your dreams.
Have you ever thought in drawing a smile
On the way of a starry moonbeam?...
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders!
The weight of sins is too big
For you to carry alone.
So, share some of your load, before you go home.
Hear the cry of the rainbow
Painting dew drops and dreams in your eyes!
Sitting on a rock at the beach
Counting your blessings of being alive!
Hey there! We are the rainbow.
Yes! We are the rainbow.
Cast your gaze over the deep blue sea.
Catch the glimmer of rolling waves,
As time stands still in your eyes.
Offer a brand new smile, and a glimpse of your life.
The sea breeze becomes a lifetime tradition.
The spirit eyes in the sky
Paint a rainbow on a tiny rosebud,
which ignites your feeling of being alive...
