Sort of Nature, sort of maybe self help too...

Ebb & Flow…


We all well know,

That the ebb & flow,

Of the oceans do glow,

In our memories from long ago…


Nature, she does bestow,

Upon us her beautiful show,

To help us to recall that which we lost,

That moment in life, when we all know,

We are one with each other; just take it slow…


In life as in Nature, all things are one,

The self, and the flora & fauna of our planet,

All working together to put on their best hello,

For the big yellow ball in the sky, our sun,

Who comes up everyday, to take a picture,

Of this earth and its inhabitants,

Sending it along to god, to show,

Our life goes as planned, living well, in status-quo…

Enjoyed reading I want to share mine with yoy

My poem Ebb and Flow!!

Me lonesome lover of the sea
For eternity your ebb and flow
Sulking widow of the ocean

"Ebb and Flow"

The Ocean gets colder sometimes
And the waves get weaker and smaller
But still takes without hesitation
Another load ashore
Of sea bamboo restless
It takes a little longer
On a different shoulder
But bring its load
Safe ashore yes safe
Oh ! Twilight flow of sea
Your some day waves curls and folds
Alongside two seagulls wander
Me lonesome lover of the sea
For eternity your ebb and flow
Sulking widow of the ocean
Dressed in black in mind
Oh ! God beside You
Moving waters
I miss my man next to me
Where did he go
Will he be back
To walk my beach
With me some day
Like ebb and Flow
Hand in hand
Would he??

Love Tinka
