Riptide - Poem by Stevie Taite

The layers of comment
fall on top
Like in the making of
sedimentary rock
And fossilised
amongst opinions
are thanks for support
In this dominion

The layers of words
whether many or few
Will recycle our eyes
to Poets new
So we can deposit
some thought of ours
Big apologies if it takes
more than hours

Hey where are the poems
in this analogy
They are the beautiful
deep blue Sea
That laps and swirls
with riptides of emotions
We take pleasure in swimming
in the poetic ocean!
