you are movement always
changing torn by gravitation’s
effects moon earth sun
time scales years or hours fluctuate
forceful oscillating currents that
reverse or cease
underwater bathymetry and
coastlines tease play with you
yet you remain mostly untapped
energy unable to be harnessed your
strength not bridled I ride you
nights bathed in silver light
swept along by your haste your
determination galactic vigor set in
motion I am unable to resist
my nautical charts dampened
unreadable I succumb to your ebb
flow and biological rhythms

  1. Good thing you have here! I actually love how it is easy on my eyes as well as the details are well written. I am wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which really should do the trick! Have a good day!

  2. Wonderful, makes me feel like I am at the beach and watching the power and glory of the tides around my area. Quite the flow with this offering, almost the sense of being overwhelmed even if I am not harms way. Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. This is really lovely, because you’ve given life to something that is unliving (although that is somewhat debatable). The movement of the tides gives it life. I love this poem.
