A Seaborn Nocturn.........

And at once.... I am the god of night bringing
the dawn ashore and lay it softly
at your feet

Reborn and solemn wishes arrise as the sun burns
away the misty fog revealing an
awaiting treat

As after the storms when the sea is too
cold to enjoy and the air
in soft motion

Like a new found balm applied
to your awaiting skin.......
our hands a sweetened potion

My fingers applied to your flesh
mixed with the sea.....with the sun
softening your brittle emotion

What now my love at the ends of the
motionless day .....when the
spell of dark returns

But to lower ourselves into the reflections
of a dream.....some half awakened
sleep in touch.....a slow burn

A poem for my wife , and about our first trip away together ....and to the sea from which we both came. I see footprints dissapearing into the past and I immagine them ahead too , not yet there but the shadows of them going away ahead into the future.

I was just thinking as I wrote this about our lousy track records as men . It seems for some of us that emoting anything is somehow all consuming. For me in particular emotionalism was stifled in youth . And how for woman; it is a way of life! Such differences from man to woman ! I have a vision of partners staring at each other across the dance floor women silently waiting and men ? Talking about work , the weather , their cars.......kind of sad isn't it.

Ah, ahorseback, this is so beautiful both in word and in thought. I wish you both many more years together leaving footprints in the sand at the water's edge. Thank you for the warm fuzzies on this holiday Monday morning :)

Hello Freya , I hope you're having a lovely day for such a lovely daughter. My wife is a beautiful person , a great mom , stepmom, and she sings alot in the shower , I think shes a little touched if you know what I mean! Seriously she is a far better person than I am. Oh and she's French - Irish , what does that tell you?...:-}

Yes your wife and my momma Sue is a beautiful soul!! I too have experienced her awesome drive and passion to be a great mother to me dad!! I have to say her planning the surprise birthday get together was certainly the greatest gift ever received! I love her to pieces and fall short with expressing that to her. Never take her for granted...after all she is entwined in the very fabric that holds us together! Love your daughter
