Life Saving Rain

Life Saving Rain

Life saving rain, drops splattering about
Indians in drought sought it with a dance.
Falling on tin roof, water from a spout
Every dripping hymn, giving sleeping trance.

Saving crops, the farmers to it give prayers
And seeds awaiting blooming sweet relief.
Vast seas depending upon rain's showers
Inca priests killed for it, in deep belief.

Now we know, rain often heavenly sent
God washes this flower garden he built.
Rain renews, as its dear gifts are soil-spent 
And we blithely pollute it with no guilt.

Indians honored their rain-god with glee
Not ignoring that gift, like you and me!

Love of the Ocean

Lingering waves surge into the shore.
Ominous glory, it rages for a score.
Vivacious peaks beautify its core.
Each one different, then the one before,

Once you have seen the power it holds.
From then on, the greatness unfolds.

Terrifyingly beauty raptures your mind.
Hearing its sounds enthralls us to find.
Earnest thoughts we once left behind.

Oceans beauty is spellbinding at dusk.
Creating fresh aroma, sometimes musk,
Every day delivering, treasures of mollusk.
After a day at the ocean, you may enjoy cusk.
Not one person denies the beauty so brusk.

Oceans and Oceans etc for Victor

"Oceans and Oceans etc"

Only within your arms
can make the day complete
Everything breathes for
along the tides and shore
never misses a beat
so with you I'll remain

A whisper that calls
names everything you are
Dreamland at its best

On a given day
cancers are removed
Each moment spent with you
along the sky seagulls know
navigating your world
somehow soothes the soul

Enchanting pink pearls
touches of scattered shells
caress your golden sands

SkyWatcher  -  04-24-17

note
The above entry was written in dedication to Victor Buhagiar
It was inspired by words in his review to "raindrops"
Thus this entry is all his fault (lol)
Victor I truly wrote this so fast just now
I don't even know if it makes sense
thank you for sharing the ocean with me

Orgasmic Oceans Outlive co-write with Darren White

"Orgasmic Oceans Outlive"

Open skies, where early morning sun wakes...
Rippling small waves hook the shore,
Gladly playing with sun, pebbles and sand
Along this world orgasmic senses breathe
Sending each guest higher and higher
Making this wonderment like no other
Innate flight up, up and higher still
Canto in C, wild and passionate

Only sun and moon know where to be
Capturing silhouettes of reflective light
Engaging all to be part of this world
Arched in this fluorescence whales sing their love
Near each other, nuzzling in wintry water
Slowly engaging, with carnal coyness

Onwardly waltzing upon diamond rocks
Ultimately embracing all that is rapture
Taking hold of love light and glory
Living within this open dream existence
I wish never to awake or leave
Vessels in the distance swim between dolphins, 
Each will carry us to dreamlike destinations

co written by
SkyWatcher and Darren White

note to Darren

Darren you have no idea what this entry means to me and the worth of working together with you and sharing words.  And yes sharing words of the ocean.  How grand is that.  Very.  It was an honor and privilege. 

Thank you Darren.  Excuse me.  Thank you Penguin.

SPECTACULAR ACROSTIC

S ymphony of the waves in motion,
P erpetual melodious swaying ocean
E levates one's soul to take part
C apturing the pure romantic heart
T o relax near the beach or bay
A tuned to the ions in misty spray.
C leave to the precious one you love
U plifted by the divine spirit above.
L iving with Mother Nature in harmony
A ppreciating her gifts that are free;
R ealising the best blessing is family.

Mauritius

My motherland, the land of four colors, the land of sweetness As is described by its rich history, filled with wars and battles United it stands today, giving freedom to each and every son of its soil Revered as the land of the sun, sea and sand, the beaches, the golden skin It is where was found the lost Dodo, killed till its last by those hungry colonizers The land where I took birth, the land I admire, the land away from which I shall not survive Imagination pours strongly in every corner of this island, be it in songs or in poetry Unmistakably the jewel of all the Indian Ocean Sweet is its fragrance, sweet is its beauty, my homeland it is! A small retreat surrounded by the blue lagoon Loved by all those who upon seeing its nature, do swoon!

Breathtaking


Beneath a veneer of  sapphire waves,
Rays of sunshine make fingers of light,
Ethereal, over crusty,  pink coral forms.
Atolls that rise from stark white sand, create
Tunnels for twining eels and twinkling starfish
Hues of rainbow anemones  mingle with
Tangerine flowers, resplendent along
Avenues of pelagic growth, draping over
Knolls of time worn stones, mirrored 
In sunken remnants of marble ruins.
Now, at day's end an orange sunset 
Glows with long beams to reveal a lost Atlantis.

Spectacular

Spacious, glistening as far as straining sight can wander,
Playful waves reflect the light in joyous, rippling prance,
Effervescing the myriad, resplendent sherbet-sky
Colors in flashing pirouettes, a ballerina dance.
Tides wash in and, weeping, withdraw from sentinel shores,
Aching, yearning for each returning, salt-cleansing spray,
Cresting upon warm sweeps of widely welcoming sand,
Undulating sound like the rosaries lonely nuns pray.
Layers of foaming laughter dissolve, then mount in raucous cries,
Arcing across the mighty oceans of this planet,
Rustling, swaying branches or mighty, charging samurais.

Lovers Point, LP Revisited

LOVERS POINT

I'd watch the waters of the bay
mingle with the rocks and sand.
Failing stars misted in gray
Again fail to illuminate that strand.
Lovers Point won't understand.
Lonely people seem to like it there.
I watched them all as they passed by--
Nodding to my equals there,
Gentle ones who came to tearless cry...
For what? Only the rocks know why.
One night I left that lonesome band;
Reaching out to you I touched love's flame.
You held me close and took my hand.
Once 'twas a lonely place of pain,
Until you gave Lover's Point back it's name.


LOVERS POINT REVISITED

I stood above the misty shore,
My time was short as it was late,
And watched the reflections once more--
lover's Points nocturnal state--
Our meeting place of misread fate.
Nice it was when we were there,
Except there's no more 'you and I'.
Only a memory of a brief affair,
Not lasting long as it went awry.
Cold and dark: Lover's Point's sky.
Every so often it seems to me
My life is like the waves off the shore:
One special person comes near to me,
Retreats again, is then no more.
Even the Point knows not what for.

Loveliness



L ucency of the amber sun, languidly emerging beyond pearlescent 
O ceans: omnipotent orb officiates an original new dawn, bringing
V itality and a spectrum of colour beneath sapphire skies.
E arth’s eloquent existence exhilarates her endless array of inhabitants, with a
L uxuriance of vital evergreens, lending immediate nourishment: efficient, stealthy, surreal. 
I  mbecilic though humans can be, they aren’t devoid of their own wonder and charm,                                                                                   
N ever-ceasing in their quest for excellence. Such affinity for love, honour, and family, they hold,  
E ven death adds to their beauty, ebbing away to the earth's lustrous lakes, to once again flourish,
S urrepticiously sleeping under starlit skies. The opalescence of the universe enlightens
S tupendously, filling a poet with wanderlust, and writing of this world’s bountiful loveliness.

SUMMER

Sun warmed the noon air, as
Umbrellas gave a shade to girls in bikinis.
Marvel of nature was visible with ocean waves
Made, as they moved with vigor. 
Everyone around the scene had something worth
Remembering, for the rest of their lives!

Polyphagia on board

Polyphagia on board is forbidden and not welcome ---------- when 
Everybody knows that should we ran out of food ---------- crickets 
Probably will not feed us anyhow and most of us will ---------- cry 
Pensive about victuals whilst starving madly. No ---------- seamen
Ever should go through famine. That's why we must ---------- stop 
Relapsing into gluttony in this ship. I approve of ---------- yodeling.

Pepper spray is going to be one of the ---------- calamities 
Any glutton will endure as a punishment. Thus, ---------- every 
Real seafarer will chant these words now: ---------- "Bearded 
Captain wants no fressing within his ship! Yes, ---------- captain!
Every single gob will ration the food. Frugality is a ---------- must!
Lashes and pepper spray those who fail shall ---------- undergo!"

TITATNIC




         TITANIC

     Turbulent was not the sea, wonderful largest liner floated safely.
     Inspired by luxurious ocean voyage, affluent passengers sailed gaily
     Tension-free vessel suddenly struck by hidden ice berg. Ship at stake.   
     Abrupt rush of water flow flooded the deck causing ship wreck.
     Not enough life boats to accommodate each innocent helpless soul.
     Ill-fated Titanic sank. Most tragic event, just to count death toll.
     Captain Smith prayed till last breath. Titanic ! Ocean stole.

Inhaling The Sea

Inhaling The Sea


I  found her walking the sandy shoreline.
N othing on , naked and she was so fine
H eaven must have dropped this angel down
A s I felt the sea wrap us in a soft gown.
L ove seared us together, never to ever part
I heard this vision whisper into my heart.
N ever my love , never send my love away
G iving in to the sweetest taste of her play.
T he sea sent aroma of its love flavor to me
H er smiles soon brought out this sweet plea. 
E chantress please stay and marry this man
S he agreed if we both became loving sea fans.
E ach morn walking there to face the rising sun
A vow to walk very slowly, enjoy life, never run.

The tanker's Final Journey

Ominous clouds cluster on the horizon,
Immense waves smash over the deck,
Lashing! Crashing!  Punishing!  Pounding!
Screeching metal as the hull bursts open,
Pouring its jet black cargo
Into the frothing, raging ocean.
Lightning flashes, illuminates a tragedy;
Liquid death spills from its broken heart.

World Cruise

We leave Southampton, on a damp grey morning,
Our maritime adventure, sailing the seven seas.
Red and White bunting heralds our departure,
Light rain falling in a cool, but pleasant breeze.
Days of leisure awaits us, life on the Ocean waves,
Captain’s table as guests of honour, I think not,
Riesling Wine nicely chilled, with our Sea food platter,
Upside Down cake to follow, finished with a brandy tot.
I close my eyes slowly after a wonderful day at sea.
Sun rays are getting warmer, as we venture further South,
Early start in the morning; I start my shift at three.
