The Sea and Me...

The Sea and Me...

A Poem by Rain
"

The sea has a power and a mystery that always brings me peace..

"

 

My favorite time to look at you is past midnight...alone. When the wind blows in off your unending motion. It is like a song, with the crashing of your waves setting the beat. I feel at peace with your mysterious rhythm...as if I have loved you in some distant other time.
Have I ? Did we dance along your shore ? Did we love..and then love no more ?
 
No. No, it feels unlike that. You bring me peace. Somehow within your great vastness, though your presence makes me feel insignificant, you also touch me and make me feel alive, and real.
 
Why do I come to you for peace ? Why do I seek you when I am lonely, but also when my heart beats with love ? I stand at your shore, and feel possessed by you. I feel a shield protecting me in the mist from your edge. I find wisdom in your mystery. I do feel as if I am near an ancient love. Were you my lover...perhaps the womb of my mother ?
 
 
It's as if the memory of our love is sacred , and shall always exist. You draw me to you. You whisper " It is ok." I am mesmerized by your beauty..so deep and unknown. I will love you, always...for reasons I will never truly understand.

I read this 3 times and i still feel the need to read it again. It made me feel the sand under my feet and brought the unique salty smell of the sea. I love her, although i fear her. I wish i could swim, deep down in her depths and discover her closerly. I love your poem....."I will love you, always...for reasons I will never truely understand." wonderful

True love does strange things to the very core of your being. They are like a breath of fresh air, when you think of them or see them. I still reach over expecting to feel him next to me....... yet he is off working. But the thoughts of him give me a peace, unlike I have ever felt. Just like your beautiful writing has done for me. Well done Rain!

Good morning my friend. What a peaceful, beautiful way to start my day. I lived in California for years when I was growing up but I have never walked on the beach at sunrise, or spent quiet moments with its vastnes. Too young in age I guess to appreciate. You have helped me do that with this beautiful vision.

Thanks you for that.

Hugs,
Lesa

Ah...I love the feel to this...it seems so deeply touching, yet there is a definite haunting feeling to this, an emptiness...or, well, not an emptiness exactly...a longing, a pain...there's just a whole lot going on here. Poignant, beautiful piece that I just sort of basked in. I've been gone from here for a long time, and I'm glad this was here to read when I came back.

As always, my friend, your words convey a story well spoken. I like the emotion and uncertainty in this piece. Go job on that. My one negative is the visual structure. It takes away from the poetic feel. Well, at least for me it does. I enjoyed it none the less.

Keep writing!

Cheers!
Doc.

I know this...I have lived this and whispered it to the wind...I wrote a poem called Romancing Neptune in which I literally felt I gave my heart to the deep vastness before me. A beautiful write!!!!!

i read through this once, and then twice and then...
well, wow
i absolutely adored the line comparing the sea to a mother's womb, and the way you state the questions. sometimes, questions bring more information than answers ever will and yours are of that same kind.
i look forward to reading your others.
