The Broken Shore

The Broken Shore

A Poem by Doodley
"

Dodoitsu.

"
Blessed be those Crusoe souls

Ravaged beneath blood red squall

Wrecked and violently scattered

'Pon love's broken shore.

Beautiful and powerful- yes the shore where those broken souls do lie deserted alone with no hope or belief- hanging on... not even sure if the want to be saved- oh so far far away- hoping to be found- I see upon a deserted island... once finding themselves maybe ...just wonderful🌹

Had that come up in a quiz. I would have said, dog.
Four lines of powerful verse.
Brings the story back to mind.

Jesus, thought that was a certain style of martial art.
Been many washed up and many more will follow, luckily never been there myself.
Good morning Doodley, hope all is well in the land of green and gold :))

I don't know what a dodoitsu quite is but this poem does have an effect. Even though it says souls and that they might be scattered after a ship wreck, souls that once belonged to each other will find a way back to each other even if they are marooned for a while. At least that is my interpretation.

Well done, Doodly, the comparison is so appropriate. I've never heard of this style before. Quite interesting.

If there was a shore for broken souls....then I think it would be over crowded ..... or maybe all our shores are filled with broken souls....
Maybe there is need for healing for everyone....
Just a miracle...or a magical potion perhaps.... wishful thinking... :)
