Unwritten Soul

Return To The Sea

Secret from the river
Carried by the endless waves
Flowing to return to the sea
And then hide in the ocean depth

As everybody feels happy and pain
So the innocence heart in us, just the same

Return to the sea
Listen the ballad of of waves
A confession in a song from sea
By the chanting bubbles of emotions
With the whispers in the ocean
Humming secret story from the depth
As this heart hide something in breath

    The title of the poem just took me back to my ester years of studenthood. It reminded me of one of the act plays 'The Riders to the Sea' by an Irish writer Synge portrays deep sufferings of a mother who sacrifices her sons one after other to the sea. (Report) Reply

    and life's secret is liken to salt in the sea
    unseen from outside
    but its the essence of the sea itself
    without which,
    life will not survive....

    Wonderful masterpiece of art, bro.
    So true the sea. the sea is king and every drop of water flows towards it.
    Just because the sea positions itself at the lowest level on earth.
    We can learn so much from from this untouchable vast mass of water.
    Our Creator has made it so vast, so big, but we cannot even drink from it.
    So powerful, so huge so all-receiving, 'cause it puts itself humbly low.
    Humility is strength.
    Wow, your poem provokes so many thoughts in me; I was just letting them flow for awhile.
    Excellent work. (Report) Reply

    Lovely poem Soul. The sea must hold many secrets, and is often used as a metaphor for our emotional life. (Report) Reply

    To see a unique beauty in the depths of the sea it requires a great mind and not just eyes. The cowards live in the main land and the brave ones never swam to the safety of it perhaps. With a unique and capsising theme you have penned down a beautiful poem dear Soul..
    Somewhere, somehow dear Soul, we personally lost a connection and we have been not reading each other for long.....
    Soul, I am reinventing it and do apologise for the same and wish to read your poems and do firmly believe you can never totally ignore me either. (Report) Reply

    Secret from the river
    Carried by the endless waves

    is a secret I knew as a child summer living in rivers and the sea thus your lines

    By the chanting bubbles of emotions
    With the whispers in the ocean
    Humming secret story from the depth

    echo deep memories within my soul :) missed you and I have the honour of voting the first 10+ for you :) :) :) (Report) Reply
