Fay Slimm.




As each ebbing tide seaward out-pours

and leaves its remembered love

in cove's hidden places,

as the breakers meet sand on shores

before sighing on withdrawal 

 her thoughts turn to gone embraces.

As life's rollers drag mood heedlessly

back thru' change unforeseen

to where duo pleasure once dwelt

moving tides lend no release 

from the shock of sudden rejection 

or chance for digesting farewells.

    the title say's it all .. and what follows in the massive wake that trails behind it is .. as far as poetry is concerned, awesome ........................... Neville

  • dusk arising

    The rattling bones cry of pebbles neath retiring waves mock the death of shared fulfillment as the unceasing ocean crash tells "life must go on".

    Once again your words took me to a lonely place in time upon a beach... such a grand place to come to terms with our lives.

    A place I'd like to be taken to again and again, what better reason for including in my favourites.

    I'm glad this fine poem's not gone!
    Where do poems go when 'archived'? Into some dark abyss?! lol.

    A sad but true image and allegory, of receding tides and love lost. Loved, "her thoughts tun to gone embraces, "As life's rollers drag mood heedlessly." The sea is such a massive force it's no wonder it can remind one of a lost love, which often times is a massive loss. The pain will also be of great magnitude. Just a lovely poem, Fay. - Phil A.
