The Tide (poem)

Updated on December 6, 2012

Tide

Collide

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

Ride

      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!

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

      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.
