Rookie (December 25th / New Orleans, La USA)

Captive Rage


Standing alone on her
beige sandy shores-
the Gulf of Mexico
pounds and stings my bare feet
at one with her inner tempo
as blue waters lick at lady grey.

Staring at the emptiness of it all-
Still feeling the power she yields
Waves cap and break
Hooked on the sound
of her eerie calm.

This vixen teases on a whim-
She flirts with the sun
granting her glow
Sounds of seagulls
play in harmony
captive in the music
of the sea

Seduced by her rhythm-
standing in awe of the calming rage
when eternity arrives
she will still continue alone to
ebb and flow.

    Ah this is beautiful; it takes me back 28 years ago, when we lived in Biloxi, MS.
    Thank you for the wonderful memory. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
