Footprints in the sand

Footprints in the sand

A Poem by terry smith

footprints in the sand

How do you explain 
the ocean 
to someone 
who has not seen it 
for my love for you 
is as vast & deep 
& powerful 
as she 
others are but ships 
upon the waters 
but our love 
is as wild & untamed 
as the sea herself

Great piece. It has a kind of lilting singsong quality to it, and I like how the lack of punctuation forces the reader to find their own pauses and stops. Lots of fun to roll over in the mind.

What a beautiful litany, Terry...and how wonderful it is to see you! I hope you've been well and continue to wish you the best!

Beautiful and powerful words for love and the sea.
"but our love
is as wild & untamed
as the sea herself"
The above lines. Perfect. I agree with your Terry. You must touch the sea to love her. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
