The Disquiet Sea

Photo

Pools of love and kindness
swirl as a maelstrom
filtering slowly
into vast oceans
of indifference

 ~

pools are never remembered
once snatched by currents—
fluxed in rhythm—
slicing through still water—
and dragged to the nether

 ~

an ocean controls not
the ever straining tides
filling and emptying as breath
tugging at the soul
of a disquieted sea

  1. Ahh, I never saw this at the time! I was so busy I had no time for WordPress in December, hence why I published hardly anything apart from 4 posts at the end of the month. Your words were definitely missed, I hope you’ll find the time and inspiration to write and post more often from now on. Everyone is entitled to a break, but when you write like *this*, it’s almost criminal to be away for too long – beautiful!
