Endless Time, Endless Beauty

Once upon a time
My lady called 
I stood mesmerized 
At ocean’s cusp

Glinting, glimmering, gleaming
Thousands of sparklers 
Dot her sequined dress 
Look at me!
Look at me!

Breathless ripples strew pebbles at shores edge
Cormorants perch on hips of slate
Eyes of diamond reflect starry nets
Starfish mouth warm honeycombs of tide pools
Waves of breast, milky white, feed the minions
Feet of clay glue her honeyed presence 

Roaring, rumbling, ripping
Like the sea serpents
Who call her waters home
She crashes 
Into shore’s stationary sentinels 
Whose feet she laps unceasingly

Capricious as she is
This lady is not fickle
The meditative state
Which hypnotized and paralyzed
Is there 
For your embrace

    wow, this is SO beautiful. It would fit fantastic in Broken Wing's contest as personification. Was it used for that?

    This is excellent stuff, Kathleen...I liked it the very first time I read it...and I like it even more now. You are right to revise this worthy piece of writing; it could be extended into other verses or follow-up poems as well - it is indeed much deserving of further expansion! My warmest regards, Kathleen...And my very best wishes! :) john

    This is really lovely poetry, Kathy; just as Connie comments..."Exquisite"! I truly thought I was reading some of the best parts of Ezra Pound's "Cantos". May I take this opportunity to wish you a very happy and contented Easter, Kathy. God bless - My very warmest regards! :) john P.s I do not know if you have ever read the Cantos...But I suspect you would approve of it very much. :)

    The ocean in itself is a poem waiting to be written, Mrs Kathleen. Just beautiful! The imagery is excellent.
