The Ocean's Blessing

 

Inspired by Sue’s poem “The Nature of Love”

(http://www.writerscafe.org/writing/ladysue/607187/)

 

 

Her hungered eyes drank waters' blue

As waves did strain to meet her stride

And she, with yearning, welled bold forth

Embracing sea's warm, calming tide

 

How waters leapt, caressing legs

And wind rose wild to toss her hair

How she so wept to shed life’s woes

And sea, with blessings, answered prayer

 

And in that fluent benediction

Soul opened wide to meet ' sea's air

And cradled, cleansed by waves, rejoiced

To revel in this union rare

 

All anguished tears of life were dried

As ocean washed years' cares away

And to her core she was renewed

When sun did set upon the day

 

And smiling, turned she to the night

For always ocean will be there

Forever surge with pow'r of life

Serenity and peace to share

I got a very old school feel from this poem. It was like a modern take of Shakespearean language. I enjoyed it. The imagery, however, was what really blew me away with this piece. I'm always been a very straight forward type of writer but the personification that was added and clever description of the sea gave it a romantic feel. Overall, I really enjoyed this piece. I was always envious of people who could write with such vivid description. Keep writing!

I really wish that I lived in this kind of place. I can definitely say I was very moved, so moved that now I want to move to somewhere where I can have the ocean somewhere near my home. Well Done.

So what's the most important thing to say about myself? I guess the overarching aspect of my personality is that I am a scientist, an astrophysicist to be precise. Not that I am touting science.. more..
