Tangled fingers

Tangled fingers

A Poem by Rudi J.P. Lejaeghere
"

Time wasted at the beach is time well spent

"

















Beach toes, water hands and foam cups,

how fishes slip between solar oil

I know the dipping of the dunes

and the grass growing on their peaks

 

tangled fingers, long knives and sea crests

waves snapping in the winds

the sides of the water absorb

who will walk the jetty’s

 

the sea, the sea

 

the gulls calling the fish together

horizon cut by sailing vessels

throw a bone at the beachcomber

reveal the white whale bodies

 

where the sun will flood in the ground

and heaven melts with the blue sky

in the glow of wooden staves

there where the catch

counts the fishermen.

I see such a clash between man and nature
Some elements of us are in harmony with nature
Like a fisherman
But all the bodies that travel the water should be forbidden
Cutting through the peace of water

Love your writes
I can't admire your pen enough :)

Tks
Gorgeous words, Rudi :) I have a personal attachment to beaches..and when they are expressed as eloquently as yourself, then it is simply an amazing picture painted into my head, for me to enjoy. My personally favourite lines: "Where the sun will flood in the ground and heaven melts with the blue sky", and "horizon cut by sailing vessels"
Definitely a piece to be reread!

There are beaches plentiful to choose from here in California. Is there any place better to be for a day's excursion?

"where the sun will flood in the ground
and heaven melts with the blue sky"


This breathes tranquility, Rudi!
