I still have the luxury of a few left to post from my April poem-a-day challenge! Lucky me! :)) K xx


we walked onto the saltflats
in the absence of water,
spring tide at it’s lowest ebb.

Venturing out into the bay,
I summoned winds,
commanded waves,

then, whistling, turned
and headed for shore,
calling the sea to heel:

the shallows another gundog
trotting obediently behind me.

...your wishes move waters...and I listen to the sound...from an ocean so much beauty in force...found turning in this fine poetic piece. ...I find a tranquil inner world within your words Kate.

is a sea poem!

...and what a powerful woman/goddess you must be... to command the waves and have them obey...

But a graceful woman knows about timing-- that it is everything-- knowing when to command is a sure sign of a woman who knows how to be obeyed... it's the law, afterall... the law of a woman's nature...

As an old beachcomber from years past, I love exploring the low tides and high to see what lovely treasures and mysteries have been washed up to lay at my feet. I love the smell of brine and the soft fogs that roll in along our North Atlantic shores. This write dear Kate brought that to mind and I wished we could have shared that landscape in reality as clearly as you offered it on paper. Well done.
