I guess I got carried away

Sandy Beach

Sandy Beach (Photo credit: Varin Tsai)

she was the soothing rhythmic sound
of ocean waves hitting
against a long sandy beach

each morning, I walked on the beach alone
with sea gulls noisily complaining
of my unwelcome trespass

finally, I sat down and waited
until the rising tide lifted and carried me
back home to the sea where I belong

    This reminds me of the time a friend sent me a video taken along the coast line. I could hardly hear what was being said because of them sea gulls going crazy. UGH!

    You make me cry.

      This one, the “hidden hot springs in my heart”, and “her tender voice” are some of my favorite recent poems, I think. They are all pulled from someplace deep inside of me and ring so true to me.

    I read this again and it is still so moving. Is there such a thing as a hauntingly beautiful tragedy? There must be because I’ve seen it here.

      Thanks. This is one of my favorite free verse poems, I think.

      Tragedy always makes me cry, too. I can’t read or watch them as much as I liked to do in my youth, though. I get too emotional.
