Sunday is for Poetry: The Ocean, Unrequited, The Power of Ism, A Drop of Water




THE OCEAN

Waves slam the beach
forging, rearranging the shoreline.

They recede, I feel their pull
from New Jersey to Greece.



UNREQUITED

Through his songs
My love for him grew;
His presence only on vinyl.

Closest I came
One section away,
Our glances locked;
Never before did I feel eternity.

A DROP OF WATER

No beginning;
No end;
And everything between.

Hi Petra, thanks for writing on my blog comments about screenwriting. You are so right about never giving up. It's hard work but a passion. I love your photos and poetry. Let's keep in touch. Enjoy your 4th of July.

Hi Petra, I have included a translator en the sidebar on my blog but the translation is only aproximative, like spanglish but It's better than nothing.

The clouds, sea, and sky drew me in; then there was no turning back, scrolling down and taking in your poetry and your story.

Hi Petra,
Thanks for your comment on my poem "Steal This Poem." I like your story/poem "Haste makes Waste," and the poem "The Weekend Comes." Very Fine.
I'm new to this whole blog universe, so not sure if this is the right way to respond to your post.
