On Waves

The tide came in, on blue waves,
flushed her cheeks, pastel pink,
blending in with the setting sun,
salt water healed open wounds

Heart pattered to pounding surf,
her laughter lifted nearby gulls,
they flew, noting her found love,
that rolled in, from keeper of  stars

The tide went out, on cold waves,
how dare they take this given gift,
opening wounds, raw once more,
tears washed away sand at feet,

Ah, but so they thought they did,
she winked at the almighty sea,
halfway smirk, knowing this treasure,
was given to her, blessed for keeps

Last night I wrote something about a cold sea and a warm vision that is shared... funny how the sea inspires us and reflects our moods and emotions. As a reader, I feel close to this woman and understand the cyclical nature of things that come and go, until we are no longer scared of living.

The mighty waters are such a medium of giving and taking in such dramatic ways. But the secrets she imparts and is party to... now that's another story and she must own many hundreds of thousands if you think that each glint on the waves is a wink (or a halfway smirk!) from each of us who has taken her into our confidence! Love this, Christine. May the sea wash you safe back onto our AD shores before too long... Take care xx

ahhh, a refreshing pause, as waves subside, and the long lingering looks, so like the setting sun, so like the lifting wind carrying the cruising gulls... nothing like this imagery and the kind of inverse pathetic fallacy that you make it engender within the heart and soul of your protagonist, the speaker who is as always playing blessed for keeps... stay strong, Christine, as you will be missed by all of us who revere your inimitable style... may wonders never cease.

Taking on the sea is a challenge for any poet, but again and again, I have seen you master it and, nay, excel in what the sea gives you, n'er to be returned, always close to your heart. I hope it is good tidings which will keep you away.

The beauty of your words touch mind and heart and as the Last two lines say with a halfway smirk love given is never taken back, as always you will be missed
