Solitude lulls me

Solitude lulls me

A Poem by Jack...
"

A love as deep as the oceans...

"

 

 

Solitude lulls me

 

 

Soft sand, quill feather dreams float silently as

aquamarine emotions take me there

on tides of sapphire sea spray waves,

beneath sighing tiffany blue skies

 

“I sleep, so I may dream of you,

on wind swept wings, forever true”

 

Caressing my body as I slumber,

this sea, my warmth, my comforting wrap

keeps me safe in the glistening bounty of all that is beautiful,

while my mind ebbs to its melodic sound

 

“Solitude lulls me, on whispering waves,

singing the rhythm of warm summer days” 

 

My eyes now closed, still witness visions of aquatic peace,

harmony on polished glass, mirrored by a morning light

along crescent shores and weathered dune desires,

resting somewhere between the pages of this I keep

 

“Your poetry my world, if ever we’re apart,

touches me with splendor, so soft upon my heart”

 

Soon I shall rise with the sun, framed by green mountains

and terra cotta sands, to walk among the ermine white foam,

tracing my steps and following my every thought

of you

 

“This love, as any ocean deep,

            within my heart, for you I keep”

Thank you so very much my sweet friend. I appreciate your nice words to me.
Your words are beautifully written as always Jack, but the descriptions in the main portions of your poem seem light in comparison to the depth and gravity of the lines you've weaved in between. Deep in the heart of it indeed. Great stuff.

sapphire sea spray waves,

if ever there were an original way to describe tide water (and not the stuff in my washer but the beautiful stuff about which you write) this would be it. Frost would love this line. Its Frost worthy as in Robert Frost. Yeah. I've heard a Bazillion ways to describe blue but I've never heard this - standing O

When I was young, I used to daydream about being a beautiful mermaid. How I wished I could have gills, so that I could stay in the water forever...

Beautiful alliterations and movement in this piece. Your imagery allows the reader to be there, witnessing this gorgeous scene. Soft and romantic. Oh to sleep in the ocean's petticoats once more!

Absolutely beautiful. I love the aliteration, the vivid imagery and the structure of this piece. It is an elegant read.

"I sleep so I may dream of you" is a stunning line.
