• Emotional


    Through gaps and peaks I came,
    To see the gorgeous tide
    That builds up in the fearful east
    And blows the plains away.

    Eager to see up close
    The beauty raw unleashed
    Somehow then too got washed away
    Incautious, silly, I.

    "There is a ride in the affairs of men," says Shakespeare. This poem is projecting a similar thought, There is poetic balance in the philosophy and lterary dynamics of this metaphor, My rating is a full 10.

    You know, it's true many have been to close to surging waves and got swept away, not in ecstacy, but in horror of dragged out to sea...forever



    Love is losing your mind a little. Be just a bit too foolhardy and you lose it completely. Thanks!

    Sleeves! Funny name. This is a brilliant piece! It's sort of a spin on love at first sight - seeing the sea for the first time and instantly becoming enraptured with it. This write is an automatic modern classic to me. My poem For Summer Isles has a similar feel. Peace.



    Thanks, Stardrift, I read some of your poems and 'Abstract Blue' definitely goes into the favs.

    Poetry is what is lost in translation.
