Sea Within

“Facing blue waves of uncertainty,
I place my hand on my heart
to honor the sea
in me.”

Robyn Lee

Please enjoy this excerpt
from Renee Robinson’s
wonderful poem entitled:
Rainbow Of Souls

The tide washing in

The tide washing out

The current a powerful force

Living in the rhythm of the sea

Alive and breathing

She welcomes me

Standing on a cliff

Way up high

The sea beneath me

Her mist salting my tongue

Her breeze exploring my hair

Imprints in the sand

Her breath, we share

I hear her voice

In the sea air

She calls my name

I hear her heartbeat

Crashing on the rocks

I see her there

I dive in her waters

Within the splashing


I love the sea

I was made for her

Or maybe

She was made for me

She is the past

The present

And the future

She is history

Mystery and


The stories she tells

The treasures hidden

All part of her destiny

Alive and breathing

Living in the rhythm of the sea

Calming Fear

a pancake
flat on
my back

help me
my arms
my legs
my breath

help me
the warmth
see beyond
the fire

help me
between the
blankets of fear

Shadow Lover

Take me to the green in you

The secret valley beneath the sun

Hidden behind the whispering ghosts

Of whom you pretend to be

Open up your mossy arms

So I may open mine

And wrap all limbs round your spirit wide

To exist as half no more

Bring me to your mossy floor

Beneath the shadows of your fear

A raven bride in white

A ladder to your soul

Fold down your branches

Peel open your chocolate bark

So I may pour

As liquid amber

Through your very veins

by, Sam Craft

Prime Seats Inspired


Delighted that my image below, Prime Seats  inspired fellow blogger, Wendy Strohm, to compose this lovely poem entitled Climbing a Tree which is reflective of her own childhood memories.
Warm thanks to Wendy, and hope everyone will enjoy !

There’s nothing better than climbing a tree

And being high up with so far to see

There are various branches on which to play

And I can stay up here for most of the day

This branch here is my galloping horse

And the string I’ve tied are the reins of course

That branch over there is for my friend

We talk so much – till there is no end

But this broad branch is my favourite one

As it’s slightly shadowed from the sun

And I cannot be seen from the first look

I can lay just here and read my book

I have brought an apple for my lunch

You can tell I’m here from the noisy crunch!

~Wendy Strohm
