Poetry by J.S. Allen, OCEAN GRACE

Updated on March 18, 2011

OCEAN GRACE

How like the errant sea you are.

Sometimes close,

Sometimes far.

You leave me shells

To listen to

Your nearness roar,

And I remember.

I have yet

To learn the moon

That moves you,

Shining so bright

Among the stellar stars

When storms

No longer part us.

Here I stand

On this incessant

Strand of sand

Waiting for your tide

To take my hand

And pull me

Back to you.

I cannot help myself.

I love the sea,

Where the scale tailed

Siren sings to me;

Where sailors weep,

To plumb the deep

Of ocean

Mystery.

    I too cannot stop writing poetry! It is all that I am. And so I seek the poetry of others in the clouds of the sky, in the shadow lands or in the burning glare of raw lights. Anywhere is somewhere for poetry.

    Lovely sensitivities in this poem!

    Thank you Michelle!! The poetry by J.S. Allen is amazing!! Yesterday was his 3rd 25th Birthday and I am working diligently to publish over 500 of his incredible poems written over his facinating lifetime!! Please do not stop writing poetry!! I, too stopped and can't remember why??!! But meeting J.S. Allen almost seven years ago has made me take pen to paper again!! Pleeeeeeeeeeeese do not stop writing poetry!! In the US it is considered the lowest medium of writing, yet in other countries, poets are venerated more than their leaders!! I will pass your compliments on to him; he will LOVE hearing someone likes what he writes!! Blessings on your day!! Earth Angel!!
