bitter is the wind this night 
which tosses up the ocean tide
see how it opens up the floodgates

    This makes me wonder what you were thinking to write of the floodgates! A nice poem, Debbie. I would call it a small free verse poem!

    An ocean, a heart. Oh, the similarities. Wonderful.

    Hi Debbie....I liked how you started with bitter...a powerful word....leaves the rest just following along nicely....

    Debbie, I think we haven't seen anything yet. Since oceans will rise and the planet will get warmer. This could also be a comment on crying. You are very observant and plugged into what's going on!
