It's Not The Sea But Us Who Are The Tide - Poem by Cathy Nerujen

Source

This poem is new for me. I wrote this as I was editing a photo in Adobe Photoshop for my lady in the picture - Fehl Dungo. This is the first time I used graphic software to write a poem while editing a photo. It was a very interesting experience. Creating words inside picture or art editing software is so refreshing, and seems to unlock more inspiring words than usual. I have since created other poetry using Xara software, as it is easier to use and to work on my creative endeavors.

I think art and photo work and poetry can go together. Take the tiny survey at the end of my hub, let me know if you have created written words or works in graphic software.

It's Not the Sea But Us Who Are The Tide

Oh - to be on the warmest
nicest beach with you -
I want to sip warm mochas in your smiles -
I want to feel what it is to be so loved by you -
I want to hold your hand and walk these miles -

That few can know the love we two -
we share together -
will never stop our hearts and souls entwine so strong -
your love it is a beacon, so my soul can find its way -
and we can share our kisses all night long -

I’ve come to see you more
than just my lover now -
these past few years have opened fearless doors for us -
much more than currents, oceans, moon or tide, my love -
we sail here in this boat of Hope and Trust -


Tonight these embers of my love -
they will not fade away -
instead they glow so much inside my life -
your firefly kisses, hands and softest loving eyes -
belong to She who’ll one day Be My Wife -

I tell you now - just as I told you
countless times before -
how life is nothing - till you’re by my side -
how each and every day I cherish you so much -
It’s not the sea, but us who are the tide -

My Small Poetry Writing Survey

Have you ever tried writing poetry in graphic art software?

  • Yes, and it's great. This could be even a trend!
  • Er, no but I am willing to try it, just to see is it any good?
  • I don't use graphic software to create poetry, the word processor is good.

Hi Fehl. Wow, please calm down and have a glass of milk and have a cookie. Don't melt too much. :P

I am teasing you. This is the poem I told you about yesterday, and I was not kidding, honey. I was making the text for the art I made here, and I wound up writing something very amazing ... I am putting it on my Facebook page for you to see. The poem, as you will see, is the same poem. :P

Um, I am admitting many things, Fehl. I have been doing this a lot lately. You are the most wonderful person I have ever known and I want to be nowhere but with you, Fehl.

Thank you for all our times and our days that we share and have together. Oh Fehl... you are a dream come true for me. So much....

I know the future will be even more beautiful, Fehl. You are my reason for everything. ^_^

Mwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah Mwaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

Have a sweet day, my Angel. :)

XOXOXOXOXOXO

Beautifully worded, your love, fearless, just lovely! Merry Christmas..I want to learn graphic art software. It is amazing what you did with the boat!

Hi Ruby, thank you for this. I felt so fearless writing those words... :)

The graphic art software is great for adding text to pictures... I ended up turning the text into the poem...

The boat photo is on my hubs profile and my Twitter profile as well... it's a boat in Thailand.

Yes, I love using the art software so much. It makes pictures so much better, and especially for my hubs and my blog and for my magazine stuff.... :)

A Very Peaceful and Happy Christmas to you, Ruby. Thank you for this. I hope 2014 brings you joy and happiness. :)

Gypsy Rose Lee - thank you for the comment.

Carolinemd21 - wow, you are so kind, and thank you for this. This is one poem that was a nice experiment that went from good to a really better place. LOL. Happy New Year to you Caroline and everyone here in HubPages. I hope your holiday break and festivity was good for you. I had a fantastic year in 2013. 2014 will be even better. :)

Though I'm a bit late finding this beautiful poem I certainly appreciate it. I must say, "fearless doors" struck a cord. How many doors we open in our loving relationships.

Voted up, awesome, and interesting.


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 2 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi tillsontita, your comment is interesting. Love does open doors to us. Fearless doors refers to certain doors that some people are unable to open certain doors as society sometimes won't allow it, whether by convention or something else. It can be expanded to mean other things as well.

I try to write my poems in a language and in a way that resonates with a wide number of people, no matter what their background or circumstance. Um, not an easy thing, but you can't blame a girl for trying.

Thank you for voting , but moreso for enjoying my poem. I hope you read some of my other poems, as they are similar in content and subject.

Take care.

Cathy.

Just had to come back to read this again.

There's something about certain lines that touch my heart.

" ...that few can know the love we two..........share together..."

..."Your love is like a beacon to my soul."......

and of course anyone would melt at the line..."..It's you and l who are the tide."...xx

I have been updating some of my poetry hubs and adding things to them. Thank you for the comments. Some of the way that things are normally said, I grammatically altered ... poetic license, as poetry permits.

You are a true poet and a true poetry fan, Dim. Thank you so much. I hope your day ahead is sweet. Have a lovely day.

And I am publishing my poetry collection in the Spring. :)

Hi DDE, thank you for this. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I enjoyed writing this, even if I wrote it in the text editor of a graphic editing software application. LOL.

She really inspires you, and brings out the best in you.

I love it.

It's beyond me,

Hi Janika. Gosh, I hope it didn't leave any bruises on your sweet skin, I'd hate that. LOL. I am so funny.

Fehl, yes she inspires me so so many amazing ways on so many levels... I am lucky to have her in my life each and every day. Beyond anything ... wow, really? I would explain more but I might make you blush. Hehehe. So um... just take my word for it. I have angels watching over me, I think. I want my poetry to be a road that visits many places and states of mind and heart.

This is not my most recent poem. Well, it is in hub Pages. I have more recent poetry in Flashstar Magazine. Let me know what you think of it. Thank you so much for the lovely comments. I hope your day is sweet.

Cathy ^_^
