Rogue Wave~



Related image


Not all waves crush the bone, some pass through
But some visit the earth like frolicking mermaids,
Tossing the shore-line in its play;
And when the thrill stops,
Everything is drawn to the depths of sea….
Some not-so-lucky cry for their vanished neighbour & family;
 Amidst a bed full of bleeding sand, flotsam, bodies,
Still unsettled waves; they walk, and walk
 not knowing when they will find another land.
The waves continue to roll- and in its vaulting
All endings end & new beginnings begin.
The sea delivers a land back…..and
the world goes about its usual business.

  4. We may sigh, but the waves themselves are indifferent. It is we who would have to change to avoid the cargnage. Where can we move, how can we be of assistance to each other?

  5. This is very timely, as large parts of eastern Canada are underwater. It seems an act of faith to live at the edge of bodies of water any more.

  6. "not all waves crush bone" - I was pulled in with that image. Sometimes I wonder how things continue along as usual.

    It works in its own ways and we who benefit may not even be bothered!

  8. Humans often find it hard to adjust to the mood of both Earth and Sea as both are much more powerful than us. Such is the risk of making ones living at their meeting as they constantly goad each other!

  13. The ocean is alluring and deadly at the same time, and you've captured both aspects in this poem.
