(906) Oceanic Mysticism

Rating: 3.2

Mystified by the dangerous, yet soothing

mesmerized by its precarious nature,
the peaceful essence, sharing it’s glory.

Gazing, in wonderment of its mystical

You've put into words what I (and I suspect millions of others) feel about the mighty ocean - that magnetic pull, that feeling of wanting to be part of it. I enjoyed this immensely, Melvina. Fantastic writing. Love, Fran xx

First of all I loved the title.. and then the first verse is so inspirational. Melvina you write like an angel. I agree with Nalini that you have created the aura... the mood. Nothing less than a 10 from me.

Crossing over and into the Mother of us all. Your ocean is THE ocean, forever, mesmerizing, calling...as once she did to her little ones who ignored her, crawling out onto land. She got a few back, but we never returned to her. You have captured the depths of Time and Water here. Definitely not an easy task to take on...but you did and succeeded. Great! ! xxElysabeth

Very Emmersonian. I like the way you describe losing all sense of yourself to become part and parcel with the divine.
