LOVE AFFAIR

 

THE WAVES COLLAPSE UPON THE SILENT SAND
KISSING ITS SOFTNESS
AS THEY JOIN HAND IN HAND.

 

THE VIOLENCE OF THE SEA
MEETS THE MEEKNESS OF THE SHORE
AS JOINED TOGETHER,
THERE IS PEACE ONCE MORE.

 

WAVES RUSHING IN FROM THE HORIZON FAR AWAY,
BROILING AND CHURNING ON A
QUIET, PEACEFUL DAY.

 

HERE ON THE SAND, LISTENING
TO THE SEA’S MATING CALL,
I SIT AND I WONDER AT THE
BEAUTY OF IT ALL

 

THE SUN LOOKS DOWN,
JEALOUS OF THE SEA AND THE LAND
WHITE HOT ANGER DIRECTED AT THE WAVES
AS THEY CARESS THE ACQUIESCENT SAND.

 

I PRAY THIS ROMANCE LIVES ON AND ON,
THAT THE SEA RUSHES IN
AT EACH EARLY DAWN.

 

I WATCH WITH ENVY. EACH MEETING,
EACH CARESS.
WITH BITTER-SWEET LONGING
I PRAY FOR THE SAME ENDLESS HAPPINESS.
