When love's your companion, a walk can involve more than exercize; and the discoveries you can make cover much more than the landscape.

Ocean Sound

Morning's light stretches me

Past the shadows of drowsy homes.

Wedged views of water grow larger,

On a crabbed descent to the level shore.

My pace lengthens, finds its rhythm.

Mountains and salty tang enchant me

And I wish you by my side.

My pace falters, thinking how you

Would stroll more than stride,

Dawdle and wonder at tiny marvels,

While I wrapped muscles around ideas.

I stride again, rhythm restored,

And find you already here,

Celebrating with me our miracle:

Love's common cadence

Amid our singular styles

And our singular senses.


-Charlie Neff

This is the first of your pieces I have had the opportunity to read. I am very much impressed. It reminds me of my love of the ocean, and when my wife and I are on the beach together, how she pauses to examine all the small details while I am in a rush to see what lies ahead. There's no place quite like the ocean. It's amazing how something so powerful can offer such tranquility. Thanks for the reminder.

Wow! I am utterly enchanted by your rhythm and flow in this well-crafted piece. The imagery is potent and vivid, grabbing the reader's consciousness from the very first line. I could practically feel the ocean spray on my face as you developed each line of the poem. Nicely done.

At first I thought "she" was not with the narrator of the poem, but of course at the end, she was. Still . . . one could assume that even though "she" wasn't there . . . she really was. Whatever! Good poem.
