Much trial and tribulation lately,
until I paused and visited The Bay,
which never fails to center me...ed :)

Shellfish Bay Reflections



The waves break o’er me,

Billowy in this latest tempest;

A red tide of events and mortals.






The undertow could carry me out but for luck

And that pluck to anchor firm,

Until what, I do not know or fear.



Driven, why so driven? Why weigh against the waves?

Tether this tempest and

 Idle side the shore 'o the Bay awhile.



Rarely, does the Bay

Reflect a dead calmed, mirror of sky

To tarry and measure feelings that wake o’er me,

Storm-tossed ‘fore this self levied lull.



The Bay is a rite to me.

The Bay sweats from pours of me;

Mine, salty glands of drowned-down ‘watermen’.



Surely as the Full Flower Moon salutes the night

Are these pauses welcome markers

In the ebb and flow as

“I follow on the water”.

From the Heart of an Artist Quiet Storm by Gwendolyn Thomas Gath

Perhaps "..Quiet Storm" will help rekindle old flames buried and long forgotten or express the love so deeply locked inside of your soul longing to be released. Regardles..
