Art by Mario Sanchez Nevado

The sea--this truth must be confessed--has no generosity. No display of manly qualities--courage, hardihood, endurance, faithfulness--has ever been known to touch its irresponsible consciousness of power.
* Joseph Conrad

I told my secrets to the sea

I told my secrets to the sea
Poured words upon the winds
I let my thoughts fly high and free
Released all held within

And then the waves slapped in betray
Returning my release
To taunt me and then swirl away
Denying heartfelt peace

My anger grew, sea splashes threw
My secrets on the shore
Saddended by that traitor blue
I'll share not, anymore

Classic lines, fore by fore.

That's why I simply stand at the edge of the shore and just skim my thoughts across the advancing waves of life. Some of these sink to the bottom of forgetfulness while others are washed ashore to be picked up and skimmed once more. My memory's still too full.

I love the analogy and imagery of this piece. You gave the sea a totally different quality than what is usually talked about.

Ah yes... her spiteful face. We must never forget that she can turn and mean and nasty with it. But this is such beautiful poetry as ever, Anita. Full of poise, grace, rhythm, balance... and an awful lot of wisdom, beauty and freshness of concept within. Bless you, Kate xx

This is very unique. I've read many poems about the ocean & beach but never one like this. Nicely done!

Sorry bout that, it was not the sea, it was me....
Reviewed by Michael Guy
well you get the "eye-catching title of the day award" from me anyway.. And what a surprising, original and unexpected insight into those who Do NOT romance the sea. Conrad's comment comes from one who has spent time "sailing on it" not standing by it (I've read "Typhoon")And yes, I too when often "blue" have found the "lie" to that old myth: "you just need a beach walk!?"

Still I think you'd like my musical poem on the Sea, "August Ocean Overture".... later, michael guy

Nice image Anita and quite an interesting poem that could easily represent what happens sometimes when we share with the wrong people.
Blessings ...
Reviewed by R Beeman
hmm i am so glad that i read this work. powerful words as the waves both cleanse and yet destroy. when we weather the storms or tides, then the sea becomes an ally in our life, but when we cast our thoughts to the waves and they fall in the depths, then truly we have been betrayed.

Reviewed by E T Waldron
oh such agony in the sea's betrayal...pic and poem made for each other...

Reviewed by Jackie (Micke) Jinks
Your poem flows so smothly from beginning to end; yes...trippingly over the tongue! A great match, too...the pic and poem. Lovely...Pax

So many betrayals in life... until one discovers that security is an illusion and finds the courage to trust and venture to live. It's the only way to take THE real journey.

Good conclusion. Vulnerable soul... bully sea... it all makes for an interesting relationship, if not a sound one.--But definitely a resounding one. --Charlie

I love this. Metaphors galore . . . To have a secret means never to tell it . . . Even to your supposedly best friend . . .
Reviewed by Regis Auffray
I do love the way you expressed this. I can relate. And I agree with the sentiments that you express via your verses here. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
