Full Tide of Her Presence

The sea is a flowing gown

diaphanous and filled with light

behind her subtle movements

a touch of all that was intended

in a moment of extraordinary birth.

Beneath the surface, within

a seed clothed by the fruit

the eminence of all this life will be

when the old hunger dissolves

and the full tide of her presence

floods our souls with the peace

of one desire.

    Don, just remarkably beautiful. Imagery unforgetable. Thanks for sharing this.

  6. Thanks, Don. Love seeing old hunger dissolve as it always left one wanting more. Once gone, we are satiated with the lack of want…which is peace.

    Having just spent a week on the shore of my beloved Sea, I hear her invitation to me to be, again, in your words. Thank you.
