The rain is pouring down super hard
As I glance down to the ocean
Hard rain, almost snowflakes

The waves are so furious tonight
Surging onto the shore below

This cold yet vibrant night

This crystalline moment
Before nature is frozen
And my eyes are still warm

This endless footprint upon my mind
Leading to everywhere but where I am standing

I can hear a buoy in the distance
Sounds like a cue where not to go

Sounds like a way to remain afloat
To protect and lead the way
Away from the perils of being

It is pretty far down onto the shore
And the sea is so close and yet so deep

There is a branch hanging from the cliff
Dare I test its tranquility?

Dare I suspend myself over life?

Excellent as usual, Robert=).

Robert, I kept dwelling on "cold yet vibrant night" because you gave voice to a recurring thought of mine... but it's the subject of the sea and your gift for metaphor that surrounds my head when I read you... In my opinion, the last 3 lines have few, if any, equals, even for you! Great stuff! katy xox.

"It is pretty far down onto the shore" as a maritimer I love the way this line rolls off the tongue but the hanging branch worries me. Great write Robert.

Remain afloat and lead the way
away from danger, where you encounter not misfortune

Great poem. I can feel it.

I think you dare to suspend yourself over life quite often in these captivating poems.

Love the character of life here ... both beautiful and dangerous ...

...Go on, then!!!! Silky smooth, as has been said, but it is indeed like a mysterious allegory of the buoy, the branch and the sea... so what is the footprint saying? Reckon that's the key to this enigma. Glad to see there are others who listen to anything other than their head!! Being an ocean man, I bet you'll go with the safety of deep waters, your true home. "Warm eyes" is a unique, evocative and transcendent image that speaks volumes about the nature of the voice. Will you be back tomorrow?! :)) TY LOL Kate xx

the smoothness of this write gives one the feeling of floating
slowly over the waters edge skin senses the ocean
but not touches, always a nice journey................

Nice to have an ocean view Robert, all I see is houses, in the back, in the front. Think I'll hang on that branch. Maybe I'll fall to ocean and float out to sea, to see something different. Nice piece.G

"Before nature is frozen And my eyes are still warm" The contrast here is beautifully expressed. I see you as always being suspended over life. Pushing your creativity to the limit, observing with eyes that see so much more than the average person. Exceptional write, Jude.

Must be nice to live by the ocean. We don't always see the buoys in life as we trip and stumble seeking to survive.
