Safe Harbor






You said, "Look at the
Moon."
I said, "The sky shakes me,
I long for stillness."

You said, "Shhh, mental case.
Kiss me."
I did, and felt the tides.

Pretty sea wives linger, watching.
I cannot.
I am always drowning.

I have soft starfish hands.
You are anemone,
Not poison, but
Life and
Safe harbor.

A lovely 55, FB! I hope you have a wonderful weekend...

It always amazes me how opposites attract - maybe one brings something the other lacks and vice versa.

Lovely 55, Shay!

Debbie said...

Life and safe harbor. What a wonderful concept.

Nothing better than a safe harbor

I am so glad you know a safe harbor. I am including some virtual water wings with this comment, just in case.

And in the end, perhaps that safe harbor washes away the initial agitation. Such a well done and emotional 55, Shay.

This is most incredibly beautiful......"I am always drowning", "soft starfish hands........life and safe harbor." We all so need that safe harbor...............sigh. Romantic and beautiful.

We all need a safe harbor, but one is not always available when we feel the most vulnerable.

Lovely 55er,

Cheers,
Joanny

I love that second verse. It sounds so silly and romantic to me, the way love should be!

Lovely. A safe harbor is a wonderful thing to find in a person.

This is a beautiful piece, I love the allegory of the ocean in all writing and poems you write, it fits the heart the ocean, and it suits the hands. Love to you.
