I belonged to the sea,

and like uprooted sargasso,

I floated away;

murmurs of waves

pulse through my veins,

and the tidal pools I left

to be flotsam on the land;


my ghost ship self

drifts by the glass sometimes

—by the bed that contorts to my form—

and beckons me to go back;

back to the indigo sea,

that throbs as the beat of my heart

back to the sapphire sea


to live again.

This poem makes me drift into the ocean shore.
I drift into a liquid state until I can see the seashore no more.

Love the sea and sentimentally like this poetry written by you. Thanks for the sharing of it. The sea calms me and I forget all my troubles when I see it. Go to Atlantic City, New Jersey on bus trips often.

Good write, Gloria. First I've read. Enjoyed your use of metaphors and I'd never thought of a bed "contorting" to our shape. Unique. Loved it!

You are a deep and passionate writer! Love how you use words to paint such a vivid picture. Your writing reflects your true soul. Keep up the good work!

Thank you for your lovely comments on my poem about Nature, so I decided to check out your poetry and this poem touched me deeply..I believe that our souls are connected to something or somewhere and in each person it is a different place or thing. For Me it is definitely the sea/ocean..I wish you well, and your words are very lovely.
Peace, Love, and Light,

This is my kind of conceptual inversion, Gloria, and I adore the imagery and metaphor. That image of being flotsam on the land is so strong and full of a salty truth. This is a poem and a style of writing that I can DEFINITELY relate to. Good to meet you! :)) TY Kate xx

I can certainly 'feel' the pull of the sea in this excellently penned poem, and it makes me want to go to the coast again.

My ancestors were sailors so the sea is in my blood I suppose. I find your verses lovely poetry and I thank you for sharing them, Gloria. Love and peace to you,

I can relate to this as I was born on the waters of Newfoundland and sailors are in the family, they felt they were living by the waters of the sea, Thank you for youe words.

This is glorious; it pulses with the rhythm of the sea; it beckons the reader to dive into beautiful poetry, such as this: well done.

amazing write here...its flow and imagery are also, as good poetry should do, touch chords. I relate to this completely. Although I was born and raised in the middle of Ohio, I have always had a thing for the sea. Excellent work here.
