Forever By The Sea

Freedom comes in waves
I cannot lie
For I feel the power.
The sensual
majesty of play in ways
which always
soothe.

You rush to greet the earth
like a lover’s anticipated
moist, mist kiss.
Excitment builds.
Heart beats like a drum
then come the bulky tidal
waves.

But none can hold you,
nor, keep you in their sway
and I gain comfort in
the knowing.

The blue of you moves
and sees me breathless
as you reach inside, shake
the rock of my foundation
back to its infant core
with harmonic persuassion
and, always leaves
me wanting.

I resign all selfish ego
surrendering to your might
and could swim in you
for eternity, never
tiring from your steady
gush of life.

You come

You go.

And leave me free to
lazily gaze in dreams
Lose myself in the music
of your ebb and flow.

I love you like a harpist
plucks his strings…adoringly
Or, a pianist lovingly strokes
his keys.

But You…

are my perfect instrument
of choice.

So, play a lovers symphony.

A sonata just for me and
I will be…

Forever By The Sea

  1. Oh, Bren!! This poem holds the wooing quality of the water!

    “And leave me free to
    lazily gaze in dreams
    Lose myself in the music
    of your ebb and flow.

    I love you like a harpist
    plucks his strings…adoringly
    Or, a pianist lovingly strokes
    his keys.”

    SO beautiful!!

  2. The image of the sea and all it means to me was a wonderful treat. I also loved the inference to the acceptance of a repeating and fleeting, transitory relationship. I like it!

  3. Well! That’s just about as romantic as anyone could get! I hope you were writing it to a real person. It would be a shame to waste it on an imaginary lover!

  4. Gorgeous. Real love, as everlasting as our ocean waves. That is where my wedded bells rang, thanks for the memory. Many smiles. 🙂

  5. I adore the sea. Your poem makes the ocean a magical, mystical place. I also like the metaphor of love, closeness, and sensuality. Nicely done! 🙂

  6. Learning to play in tune..to synchronise and adapt to the ebb and flow.. perhaps how you find and feel love..inside..or for another..Jae

  7. It has been trying times,an onslaught of strength. You can hold them back and walk tall and to be in a oneness again! Great write!

  8. You have echoed all my sentiments of the sea. A perfect day for me is to sit on the beach and become lost in the rhythm of the waves. I really enjoyed your poem and it took me right to the shore.

  9. Love the rhythmic verses resembling waves. I feel the same way about the sea.

  10. The sea is a good choice on where to remain and yeah lots of freedom can come from looking at them, just don’t get the cat wet.

  11. love bren….the ocean is a fav place to go and just meditate and find rhythm again….

    You rush to greet the earth
    like a lover’s anticipated
    moist, mist kiss

    great description of the waves coming in…and realize we can not hold them as well…listening to its music…smiles.

  12. So many beautiful metaphors in this poem! So true that none can hold the waves, and when we are in their presence we have to yield to their power, cannot fight them, but must surrender to them. They are definitely a wonderful instrument, but it seems they choose their own melody sometime — often peaceful, sometimes destroying. They teach us to coexist.
