Passion’s Pinnacle

I would like to introduce another piece written alongside my dear friend Dana. This has been a longtime in coming as it has been something we have been working on in between life’s many interruptions and rollercoaster rides. It is always an honor and privilege to co-create with such an intelligent an compassionate person. I cherish every day that she is my friend. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I enjoyed penning it with her and please go see all her other work at Message In A Bottle . You won’t be disappointed.

Poseidon’s mysterious daughter of the Sea

Perched upon a shoal, gazed at the skyscraping trees

Dreams of freedom and wings to give her flight

Possessed much of her thought, day and night

 

Morning sun breaks across horizon of forest green

From atop this peak there is such beauty to be seen

A desperate yearning buried deep within his heart

Mountains majesty witness to nature’s perfect art

 

She watched the sun kiss the wondrous verdant peak

Her curiosity awakened to the mountain’s wild mystique

The desire to be embraced by the shadows quickly grew

She fled from the sea, a new life she dared to pursue

 

Within him lies a hollow heart and composure of the ages

Burning of a lonely fire stoked by passions absence rages

This blaze can only be tempered by affections morning mist

How he aches for his rough exterior to be gently, softly kissed

 

She soon discovered she was unprepared for the elements

Her bare feet and fragile skin scathed with her arrogance

She fell to the lush earth upon the painful realization

Her unhappiness had nothing to do with aqueous location

 

Two hearts seemingly beat as one mimicking the sound of the surf

Heartbeat provided by the consistent sound of waves pounding turf

A mountains miraculous empathy felt for some unknown fascination

Unsurpassed by the overwhelming beauty of ocean’s own creation

 

Upon her knees, she breathed deep, feeling unexplained connection

To the earth that covered her abrasions with his healing affection

Feeling secure for the first time in years, her saline grief flooded him

She poured out her soul while the sun rose, set and the light grew dim

 

He bathed in the showers of a millennium of secrets she revealed

Wanting nothing more than her pain and heartaches to be healed

He provided warmth and shelter with the protection from his trees

While trying to surmise a reason for fleeing the comfort of her seas

 

She confessed her fear of passions that simmer so deep

She desperately seeks another soul for her balance to keep

She is weary of her feigned strength and independence

It is her desire to possess a love of celestial transcendence

 

He listens in a perceptive silence possessed only by wise sages

Knowing her balance can be found written in history’s pages

He has stood in this place for eternity and one day it seems

His purpose to be the provider of reality to her sea of dreams
