Seascape of Love
The calm of the dark seascape reaches for miles.
Only for a moment though. A rising dawn brings to light,
mountains in the distance.
The calming mirage of blue holds my thoughts momentarily in solace.
My mind comes back to you.
Like waves crashing on craggy rocks.
Somehow, I’ve seemed to have lost you,
in the dark, thick of seascape.
Challenges leave you floundering and crashing in waves.
They’ve seemed to pull you deeper.
Down into the depths,
of deep dark water near the bottom.
Almost to the place of the drowning:
like rocks tied to a wrist.
I see you from time to time,
on the Whitecaps, where breaks are about happiness.
And I on the shore, am watching.
I try to push my small boat upon the choppy currents.
I’m determined to rescue you.
Along side, my boat oars are my anchors of love.
Paddling as fast, and furious as I can.
I find you.
Tossing my anchor over crashing waves, it falls
dark. I feel it dig into the seabed of your heart.
And I hold you till the storm passes.
In this seascape of love.
