The Ocean's Mixed Emotions - Poem by Mantsebo Golda Motlhatlhedi (Gaojewe)

On a clear day
Help me when the ocean changes from stormy to calm.
I close my eyes,
Open my heart and trust my intuition.
As I move closer to the handsome and charming man;
It is beautiful to meet you!
Above me I see clear blue skies on a hot African summer day.
Warmly looking at the unpredictable ocean waters;
Underneath the still water;
A deep and heavy current;
Running two hundred meters under the surface

Far behind me
Something behind the trees;
An angel watching at all times;
To walk the forest dark;
Like the one behind;
I will close my eyes,
Open my heart and trust my intuition.
As I am walking along the beach; birds fly over
I am closer to the handsome charming man
I want to express the way I feel about him
I am filled with joy;
I end up chatting about the calm ocean,
A clear day on a hot summer day
Insipidly chatting about birds flying over our heads

I could hear the river on the other side; swelling
And about to overflow;
Its waters heading towards the same place that brings me joy
The ocean!
I cannot steal you; nor can I make you mine
The same way one can never explain how salvation or falling in love is like;
I have composed and I will compose a million poems in my time on earth;
None will come close to explaining my feeling towards you.

Be with this woman if feeling is mutual or rather if you could
Otherwise; be with me before the mysterious ocean shows its true colours
Who knows what the sun’s heat intensions are towards the sea?
The birds could be sending a message about the coming storm
The swelling river might cause floods and sweep the forest trees away
But again the combination could be our way to a healing and relaxing atmosphere

The ocean sound;
The salty water smell;
The sandy beach;
The bird’s chirp;
Night time forest sound;

Mmmhhh – “Only you would know”
My request!
Two hundred and forty minutes
It is always beautiful to meet you.

With an angel watching at all times!
The hot summer sun watching the ocean!
The ocean giving mixed emotions!
Birds chirping all kinds of sounds!
Forget about falling in love
Let us live in the two hundred and forty minutes
