poetry & things

An opulent sea

Never leave running away in uncertain winds,

nor leave me dangling as a leaf, high or out of reach,

hung by a thread to spin

darling, you are the sea of my drowning,

the placid lake I’ve come to swim.

Come with your smile, sunning

let your days go shining at the shore

where our eyes shimmer as moonlight on water

tranquil as the silent stars that fall.

Come as the ocean blue, dazzling, opulent

with expansive arms, embracing all of this

even wildfires burning fast into embers

a torrent, a rushing river

our love, like holy water

that finds its way back

to an undying sea.
