Water, Blood and the Sea

Water, Blood and the Sea

A Poem by Fabian G. Franklin
"

...

"

 

There was water and sound

In the womb

Motion and warmth inside

 

There is life and salt

In the ocean

Endless flow of wave and tide

 

There was a rush of blood

In our birth

Forced into the cold and light

 

Whitecaps push onto the shore

In a hush

Washing sand cool and white

 

The coral seems umbilical

On the floor

Of the throbbing sea

 

Resting upon the bed of earth

With the urchin

And the anemone

 

In the vast pulse of the spherical

World it flows

Blood in the heart of humanity

 

And there all is as it should be

Salt and life

Water, blood and the sea

'.. Whitecaps push onto the shore
In a hush
Washing sand cool and white

The coral seems umbilical
On the floor
Of the throbbing sea'

Every segment of this poem conjurs such a distinct and beautiful painting and emoiton, Fabian. Tis a world lover's words, tis a believer's heart speaking.

Thank you so very, very much for sharing these thoughts.

And thank you for reading, your time and kind words. Bless.
we are born in a sea, often live by a sea...become a vast ocean of thoughts and actions...
and are made up of mostly water...

i hope we bring our life raft with us...this analogy is written with your usual terrific imagery.
