The Breath of The Ocean Beckons Me. A Sonnet, Dedicated to Sujaya Venkatesh for Your Radiant Words.

Evening Tide

Silence embraces me, as I rescind into the evening tide.

My flame-waves dance into the Heart of the horizon,

As the Earth replenishes my longing.

Rejuvenated, I prepare for tomorrow’s virgin sunrise,

As new beginning’s smile upon my brow.

I go forth into another dawn, set sail,

As the Boatman steadies my mast.

Storms of struggle loom large before me,

And my bow becomes heavily turbulent.

The Breath of the Ocean beckons me,

As I float on the crest of vicissitudes anew.

Dauntlessly surfing the tsunami waves,

I mimic an augmented Light,

Shining brilliantly, in the splendid mansion of the Soul.

You match Sujaya's radiant words beautifully and effectively. "Virgin sunrise" is my take away from this one.

Thank you, Whonu. Much appreciated.

Ms Dora, Good morning! It is a beautiful Monday. I will put another poem up very soon - post breakfast - to reflect this.

Yes, she's good, isn't she? My salutations to your loving heart and life of beauty.

Manatita, you describe the turbulence life often brings and the calming effect reflection, exploration, and faith can quiet the rough tides.

Beautifully said!

Yes, my Sweet. I actually thought of you, as through no conscious decision of my own, I'm actually using Rivers, sea and boats these days. Someone said that I liked 'lights.' Well, that is also true.

Your contribution is invaluable as always. Thank you so much, Shauna.

Excellent. It reminded me of the days of home, when I would wander to the shore, and wonder why I could not be out there, too.
