Ebb Tide Enchantment

Ebb Tide Enchantment

A Poem by Phill Oz O'fee
"

Strange what you can find on the beach …

"

Ebb Tide Enchantment




On an isolated sandy seaside beach

Laridae cawing focussed my attention

To a single alluring mysterious figure

Staring deep in thought towards the sea


Incoming gentle waves of churning froth

Caressed like slippers around naked feet

And soft summer breeze played her dress

In subtle silken magical brush movements


Seemingly soft focus to my attentive eyes

Sunlight illuminates her strapless shoulders

Setting aglow an apparition of Aphrodite beauty

Captivatingly entrancing my very mortal soul


I cannot control my trembling turbulent feelings

But will make no sound as not to distract her

For it would be like fine porcelain hitting marble

And shatter this dreamscape vision I behold


Imaginations upon horizon only she can see

So I will bow my head for now and pass on by

To let reflections of her exquisite image rest

An indelible delicate portrait inside my heart

That poem and that painting are as perfectly matched as any. A very soft touch on this one with visuals that are stunning. You let the pace dictate the feel and ended up with a very masterful piece of writing, full of quality of light and infatuation. Nice work!!!

Being inspired from a pic seems wonderful... :)
Or was that when you were strolling down the beach
Must have been one beautiful lady to inspire such
Words :)
I like the way you have painted her for us to see...
Nice one Phill...

This is one of your best. I really love using music or photos to inspire my own writing, but I can only imagine what it would be like to look at this painting & come up with your flowing effusive poem! I have to say, I much prefer your longer poems to the short poetic formats you sometimes craft. You do long flowing descriptions better than most with strong wordplay such as alliteration & more. It’s clear you love playing with vocabulary! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
