Ocean's Rites

The Earth rotates around …spins The moon carries its own power The ocean, it focuses on Seeking the meek, lighthouse tower The waves are created …splash We play within the froth and foam Lowering myself to its side I know its love within the zone Into the sea the sky …reflects Makes the waves a romantic blue Entranced I follow the shoreline There is no greater love than you The heavens and with them …power And the ocean lives with its own I carry along with me strength To survive when the Earth does groan Spins, the world moves for life loved Splash, the oceans crash for desire Reflects, thinks of ancient days past Power, holds enough to quench fire

    Good one Russell, a true romantic expression! Thanks for commenting on my poem. It wasn't quite finished when you read it but it is now.

    Dear Russel, We also seek our lighthouse tower: Love, then we spin around it till we get dizzy with power! Very well expressed, tenderness, hope and aspirations in an erotic embrace! Thank you
