In shadows of mist and night
harbour lights would glow
so safe
yet, maybe not so
music still plays

Feelings arise from
oceans breathing within.

Deep, so deep

each wave rises to its peak
then folds back into
self again

Singing winds
I catch myself listening
where I thought all
songs had been sung
into past echoes
and the last escape of
dream flight.

Slipping back into that
place of comfort
I’ve searched among the ruins
for missing pieces to
complete the scene
Absentmindedly hum
to the silent vibration
where you left that
promise there
for me to catch in
a breath of air.

  1. I love the ocean and waves and just the whole beautiful splendor of it. I was raised in CA so spent many happy times on the beach. I miss it the most.

  2. lots to love in this bren…love the ocean and the imagery you us…the folding waves…the fresh breeze…very nice…

  3. Beautifully penned. Love the “oceans breathing within” and the “singing winds”. This poem makes me homesick! I have been too long away from the song of the waves.

  4. Very deep, so deep, a whole heapin’ deep. Isn’t that deep? You want me to go deeper? Damn! I think I dug a whole too deep. You’re verse was nice and deep, I like my place of comfort, but it isn’t deep. Is that okay? Now don’t get deep on me.
