NaPoWriMo Day 20 – Waves of Time
The thing I miss the most about living in Cornwall is the sea. Until I moved to Hertfordshire I didn’t realise how lucky I was to have a beach on my doorstep – one of the first things I did when I went home for the Easter holidays was have a paddle in the sea! This poem is called “Waves of Time”, I hope you enjoy the read – and Happy Easter! 🙂
It always brings me back
draws my gaze unlike any other,
piercing, captivating my mind
right between the eyes.
Blowing past the insignificance
teasing me inward,
knowing I’ll come calling
when all I can see
I stiffen my back to the slaughtering gale
a stone wall undefeated,
it traps itself in my mind
it won’t let go
forcing itself upon every corner
battling my wits, I unwillingly struggle
but don’t let go,
I see the world
and I, so small
a single grain of sand
lost within a beach.
This sea right here
howling my name
its hypnotic feel
here I stand, amidst its isolation
and I hear it call again,
feeding off the loneliness
thoughts of trickery abound
stealing not only a mind, a heart,
but my smile brings a welcome sound
as I taste victory mingled with brine….
its echo carried forever
on the waves of time.
