The Mist, The Fog, and the Ocean's Call

Standing before the great water's roll...
Lost within a dream of greatness...
Breathing in slow.   .     .
Exhales more like whispers..
The burning sun had given way to the calling of night...
The gathering of stones, cool and ancient...
Collecting the sea's sadness...
As the last flicker of light fades until the chiming of tomorrow,
I look to the night sky...
There she is found...
In the shifting shadows of the moon...
A thousand departures created the void...
Releasing the hold on today...
With outstretched arms, I fall into the mist, the fog and the ocean's call.....TAH

I felt shivers reading this; the loneliness you imply, sounds of the sea and moonlight bind together to create a captivating poem. So full of fascinating imagery and I loved it! :)

So tender, so full of night imagery and the magic of the sea. I too can hear the call of the sea.

Exquisitely written... I can truly feel the pull to the ocean and beyond. You have a great deal of talent... But soooo sad it rings the hope out of us.... Still very greatly written!
