The Waltz

The Waltz

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

The ocean and love create emotions and passion that stay with us forever.

"

The waltz 


We were doing a waltz upon the beach.
 The waves were the orchestra.
 The wind was whispering a love song.


 I tossed her into a twirl.
 Brought her back to me.

 By the light of the moon.
 Two lovers danced the movement of freedom
 and celebrating being alive.


 We come back to the ocean after each journey.
 The ocean keeps our secrets.
 
The dancing waves are always waiting.


  She was as beautiful as when I first saw her
  and I held her like she was my last breath.


 Two shadows upon a naked beach.
Doing the dance of hope and freedom.
 
 The cold of winter is surrounding us.
We warm each other with laughter and dancing.


 Two friends, lovers  and travelers who come to celebrate being alive.
Peace for a moment for two people who love the road.


 We find each other at the end of our journeys.
Two wanderers in search of peace.

  I love you my beautiful  Beatrice

What a wonderful thought .. the waves were the orchestra .. tis true, tis really true, the sounds of water ripple and play on and on endlessly. This is such a warm romantic poem, John .. a time of specialness and the making of lasting memories. A beautiful phrase, 'She was as beautiful as when I first saw her ~ and I held her like she was my last breath.'

(Comments not getting through, so many thank yous for your review to me, John)

The journey in this poem is beautifully transcribed. "Two shadows upon a naked beach / Doing the dance of hope and freedom" -what a wonderful line. I really admire the imagery you have created here. The movements of the lovers flows as tranquilly as the actual poem itself. Lovely writing.

This is so heartfelt and beautiful Cayote, true love and what a deep romantic touch, not the cliché ones, but your thoughts for this woman go way further. I am impressed by the single beauty of this poem, and it makes me feel in love, after reading even more I already was :) Amazingly done!

Thank you for posting this piece, coyote. this is a bold and wonderful expression. as i read it it is as if i can taste the salt air and hear the joyous cackle of a surging gull. how right-sized we become, when measured against the vast! "The ocean keeps our secrets." is an incredible line on how the vast permits us to remain less dramatic, with our trials, than we usually permit ourselves to believe. ..."and I held her like she was my last breath.
dear coyote, you have a definitive knack for weaving language into originality, i am pleased to be discovering you along the shore of this site.
