The Sea

Dragon's Flight

Dragon’s Flight (Photo credit: jcc_seveq)

I let the waves wash over me
And from the deep and timeless sea
He’ll rise and sing his songs to me
His sad, sad songs to me

I tread the sand upon the shore
I want for much, but never more
Than his sweet soul that I adore
His sad, sweet soul that I adore

I tread the water as I breathe
With deep-sea flowers I am wreathed
And for his torment I am grieved
His sad, dark torment I am grieved

I swim the sea of life and time
I bring him gifts of words and rhyme
And draw his strength so old, sublime
So ancient, sad, sublime.

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
