‘in The Wave-Strike Over Unquiet Stones’

Rating: 2.2
In the wave-strike over unquiet stones
the brightness bursts and bears the rose
and the ring of water contracts to a cluster
to one drop of azure brine that falls.
O magnolia radiance breaking in spume,
magnetic voyager whose death flowers
and returns, eternal, to being and nothingness:
shattered brine, dazzling leap of the ocean.
Merged, you and I, my love, seal the silence
while the sea destroys its continual forms,
collapses its turrets of wildness and whiteness,
because in the weft of those unseen garments
of headlong water, and perpetual sand,
we bear the sole, relentless tenderness.
Pablo Neruda

Merged, you and I, my love, seal the silence while the sea destroys its continual forms, .....we bear the sole, relentless tenderness/// excellent, most expressive; we the human, the being of tolerance everything in continual destruction of life; in this poem the deep struggle of human is hidden through the destroyer sea waves// great poem penned

In the wave-strike over unquiet stones the brightness bursts and bears the rose and the ring of water contracts to a cluster to one drop of azure brine that falls. What an imagery these words are able to conjure up! Magical,

A different style too descriptive and beautiful is Pablo Neruda's...like a lot- 10

“In the Wave-Strike Over Unquiet Stones”, expresses how romantic love fades. Like the waves of the ocean, Neruda expresses romantic love ebbing and flowing. [Tambl]
