Trying To Catch The Sun - Poem by Lamerre Lucie

On the sand I stand,
Here, in front of the ocean.
My eyes gazing at the horizon,
My body as cold as could be.

They say: 'You get as much as you give'
And the sea pulls its waves up to the shore
And the wind blows the birds away.

I'm trying to catch the Sun,
Trying and wanting to give up

The Sun high and proud
Mocks me, looks down on me;
It knows about my weakness,
It knows about my hopes.

I want the ocean to roar at me,
I want the wind to blow me away,
I want to catch the Sun,
And to lose myself into its light.

    A beautiful poem with a beautiful graphic.
    Loved these lines:
    'I want the ocean to roar at me,
    I want the wind to blow me away,
    I want to catch the Sun,
    And to lose myself into its light.'

    A lovely poem that emphasizes the role the sun plays in our lives. We know there also a danger and yet it can even be a friend. Read mine - Night Creeps -

    mi piace la tua poesia, Lucie.. I like its inner music.. rythm..
    Here is its 'finale' in Italian:

    - -
    I want the ocean to roar at me,
    I want the wind to blow me away,
    I want to catch the Sun,
    And to lose myself into its light.


    Voglio che l'oceano mi ruggisca contro,
    Voglio che il vento mi soffi via,
    Voglio afferrare il sole
    E perdermi nella sua luce.
    - -

    ciao!

    Entire poem is a treat to our senses as it draws inspiration from nature. I have enjoyed reading it. A quote from the poem:
    I want to catch the Sun,
    And to lose myself into its light.
