a new beginning

with each crest of a wave
forming white crystal peaks
she weeps, inhales, let's go.

beneath a star studded vista
a resplendent guiding light
arms open, palms up, she is free.

the soothing sea winds
carrying away her grief and sorrow
hands posed in devotion, she smiles.

in a seascape of serenity
her baptism place of choice
she steps forward, her new beginning.

I've always really liked this one. It leaves a bit of mystery, but the message of the release of the past and starting over is clear. It does leave me wondering why you have this need. I hope it has worked well for you.

Lovely sparse writing, but with just enough ambiguity. Baptism or suicide?

I don't think I've ever read a poem about a baptism before, and I'm in awe at how beautifully you've painted the picture of this moment for us. Very very well done.

We are captivated by nature's awesome presence and gently soothed by the quiet and splendor of the moment as a new beginning and a new acceptance is brought forth. Emile.
