Y// Leaves And Waves - Poem by Aufie Zophy

Through the leafy bed of the shrubs and trees
I can see the wild waves running on the seas

The leaves of shrubs, the things we do or say
The leaves of trees, our thoughts, day by day

The wonderful breaking waves of the sea
the Love that is always there for you and me

Most of the things that we think, say or do
Have been already thought, said or done
But love is forever there and always new
Never been seen in any of the days bygone

If the leaves are too dense and too much
we cannot experience the waves as such

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The leaves of shrubs and trees tend to beautify a picture of the waves of the sea. What we do, say and think beautifies the Love with capital L. However if we say, do and think too much the Love, our biggest reason for living, may be hidden forever. Sometimes we have to make it still and silent, to fully experience the Love

{Inspired by a song of Toon Hermans}

    To be free in thought and spirit when we're in love is the true essence of love, not to want to control but to trust and allow freedom like the wildness of the waves to embrace both our souls!
    Stunning write!

    Verily, a good similitude of life and waves to leaves and shrubs. (Report) Reply
