Wave And Shore Poem by Valsa George

Wave And Shore

Rating: 5.0

We are the wave
and the shore
embracing and drifting apart
meeting only for seconds
over our heads seagulls roar
around us soapy foams giggle

will I ever hold you again?
wish once more
I could run into your arms

sometimes, I feel
I am on a journey to you
with a prayer not to reach you
once I reach
what shall I do?
what will you do?

so till death, let me scuttle
between the starting point
and the destination!


let us be a pair of gulls in flight
you forever, staying close to me
as the wind beneath my wings!

Valsa, this is terrific! This verse is truly inspired. The waves and the shore- -so often meeting, touching....but the relationship is so very often fleeting. This reminds me of what goes on between so many. Perhaps this is why so much of great poetry is about wanting and pining and yearning. A fabulous poem, Valsa.

Thank you so much Lemon for your wonderful comment! This is about yearning and pining as you have rightly observed!

A melancholic reflection on love that does not wish to be fixed or defined. Yet this relationship flies with full wings perhaps because it works best this way. A perfect 10.

You see love through nature and nature through love, then you weave it into a meaningful poem for all to appreciate. You have a gift most rare. Thanks Valsa

A few things come to mind with this poem, Valsa. But first, I especially like the phrase, soapy foams giggle. This makes me think of a different description of the same phenomenon in my poem At Twenty Years. Then the longing you express brings to mind a song sung by Bobby Darin titled, Beyond the Sea. I encourage you to look up the lyrics and listen to it. I think you’ll enjoy it. Love fill and surround you. Glen

Life is a journey, it starts with a virtual love and heads towards a real love. sometimes, I feel I am on a journey to you with a prayer not to reach you once I reach what shall I do? what will you do? Great lines.

Valsa, you've expressed so much about relationships and the hope that love may last with both side by side forever. I'll never look at waves on a shore in the same way again, some days stormy and others calm...
