The Tide (poem)



With the shore

As feelings roar

When once more I see

What a dream has set free


Feeling heart sore

At what couldn’t be

This treasure from the sea

A kiss from the moonlight

Which now has possessed me

With surging tides of delight

Waves of flame soon fill the night


With each kiss new dreams ignite

Drifting past reality

With our course now burning bright

As echoes call from distant height

And passion’s current holds us tight

A final kiss with goal in sight

A whispered wish as we unite


In welcome arms we alight

Returning pilgrims we

Bourn in ecstasy

Who did explore

Now a memory

Which we’ll adore

And once more

This tide

Much emotion and feelings displayed in this work, Mhatter, and I like your format in ascending and descending in the wording. Well done, my friend. whonu

Hi Martin.

An amazing poem full of emotion, but then I have always had a love affair with the sea.

Wonderful video, including the sexiest musical instrument ever made, what a sound.

The poetry is wonderful, especially the image of the tide rolling in and out again built from the length of lines. Loved it.

I love the first photo. It reminds me that we need to make a trip to the beach before the year's end. Very romantic poetry. You have style!
