He Embraced the Sea

He said he needed to freely roam, so on a ship he set sail. He embraced the sea, deserting me. My one love bid me farewell. He said he needed to feel the wind caress his face till day was done. Deserting me, he embraced the sea and was loved by moon and sun! He said he needed to breathe the scent of ocean salt and fresh air. He embraced the sea, deserting me. Too strong was their love affair. He said he needed to stay with her and not with me on dry ground. Deserting me, he embraced the sea - her blue beauty all around. He said he needed to hear the crash of her waves. What was her lure? Embraced by the sea, deserting me; he lived all his life for her. He said he needed the space she gave. In the end, he was her slave! Deserting me, embraced by the sea, he is hers, for she’s his grave! Written 12/24/12 For the ZaniLa Rhyme - an exiting new contest for the holidays... Poetry Contest of Suzette Crous

    My biggest love affair was with the ocean. Loved this poem as it was about my own true love. There is definitely a lure that matches no other.

    Love your creative mind Andrea---imagine those days, especially in the past where the sea was men's first love.

    I loved this poem, Andrea. I did not understand why the last two stanzas introduced a new theme in line c1;c2. Congratulations on your win in the ZaniLa Rhyme contest. Love, Su

    It reads more like a story than a poem because it is penned so well.
