awakened by sailors milky tears

from depths beyond the sun

she rose red ribbon bound

born of shell and bone,

sand shifted

muted fish schools scattered

his embrace she sought,

scarecrow masted vessel

dashed upon sharp geology,

to safety they leaped,

cruel sky streaked by storm

and acoustic rumble,

body battered in dinghy lay

hand outstretched

fingertips testing jagged surface,

light shone and radiated

in her eyes as close rose

long limbed form kelp caressed

finding him now face down

closer towards him,

lifting his frame from sea to shore

air sharp on lungs

heart pounding,

ship exploded a desolate fireball

as she bowed over him

lips to his,

spluttering coughing

found himself exhausted

and willing in her eyes

bonded by kiss

in eternities grasp

sailor, sea, passion, love, desire

water, woman, sailing, dream

    Pity the reader has to scroll to read the poem. Doesn’t help one’s concentration.

    Very rewarding read. Thank you.

  7. “…bonded by kiss
    in eternities grasp”

    Beautifully captured, lovely storyline.
    Curious why the double-spacing always between each line. Causes pausing on each line in my humble opinion does not read as smoothly as it could. Still perhaps, just your style.
    Nicely penned 🙂
