Song of the Sea


Day 25 of the Soul Card Journey
with Elizabeth Crawford of Soul's Music
Soul Cards by Deborah Koff-Chapin
at http://www.touchdrawing.com/

Perched on a cliff
above the sea,
Traveler communes
with the
midnight moon.
Bioluminescence
outlines
both sea
and shore
with a magical
radiance
she has never seen
before.

Traveler basks there
for a time,
feeling an
inner glow,
sea spray
welcome
on her face
as breakers
crash and churn
against the
blackened
rocks below.

Though she
must turn away
and leave
the sea she loves
behind,
 she carries
its song
within,
its waves
advancing
and retreating
forever
in her mind.

  3. Sherry, I understand carrying the sound of the sea within. D could also identify with that. She too is an ocean girl.

  4. I was only near the ocean one day, yet I know its sound and its movement within me. Thank you Sherry, for this wonderful reminder of a memory I cherish,

  7. Always the gracious, artistic storyteller. You are outdoing yourself in all these poems, Koko. I agree with Mama Zen, that word bioluminesence.
