Believe (Acrostic)

Before the dawn of time it was determined

Everlasting love awarded to those who wait

Life’s meaning played to the beat of one heart

Interrupted by distance and circumstance

Entwined forever by patience and fortitude

Veritable devotion rising from a phoenix’s nest

Emblazoned with the jewels of pride and poise

 

 

My Fellow Warriors

As I was closing out a comment to a very dear blogging friend, this line came to mind and it spoke to me of so many brave life warriors I have come into contact with here on WP. They say “The pen is mightier than the sword”. This may be true, but would it not be twice as effective to wield both with skill and precision?  So this brief wish is from my imagination to all of you.

May your sword be deadly sharp and lightning quick, while your pen remains always at the ready to write away your Demons.

Ocean’s Majesty (Lady of the Sea)

While reading through my new friend Desiree’s blog site, and becoming an instant fan of her creative and passionate talent with words, I ran across the namesake poem of her site “Sea Of Desire”. I was instantly floored by it’s tragic beauty and was inspired to expand on it with her permission. Please check it out and see part one of this piece  for yourself  as well as see what else she has in store for you. You can find “Sea Of Desire” at http://seaofdesire.wordpress.com/2013/11/13/sea-of-desire/

Thank you D. for allowing me the privilege of continuing your story 

1 ocean

Suddenly my ears are sharply alerted
Sounds of distant cries bring chills
Reverberating through the trees
Directly from the waters edge

Not the customary song of sirens
Nor Poseidons furious commands
Something different…

Frantic

Beckoning

Shrieking

Pleading

Growing weaker

I make my way to the sea with haste
As desperations urgent call demands
I arrive to look upon tumultuous ocean
A violent skirmish between the tides.
I scan the depths for outcry’s source
As a myriad of sea creatures wage war

My surprise and dismay overwhelm me
As I watch briny blue turn crimson red
My eyes look upon raw beauty
As it is thrashed violently about
Murky depths fill with scarlet clouds
Cascading from her bleeding heart

No hesitation holds me back as I charge
Bravely through the dangerous surf
Extricating fair maiden from coral razors
Delivering her exhausted figure to the shore

I lay this broken and bleeding vision gently down
Her weakened loveliness tenderly graces the sand
Softly I begin to breathe my existence into hers
Whispers of my life fill her heart and soul
Slowly she comes alive in my embrace
Her wounds swiftly heal as if by magic
As warmth and passion returns to her lips

She opens her eyes to reveal true brilliance
As captivatingly vast as the eternal sky
Delivered sweetly by her piercing gaze
I can see deeply into her delicate soul

I am mesmerized by the flames of endless love
As they flicker and dance in the distance

How I now yearn to be lost in those eyes.
Forever in harmony with passions heartsong
To be in full command of every dangerous curve
Yet a slave to her silken, sultry seduction

Every fibre of my being cries out in frustrated agony
As I am stricken with most assured recognition
That this wild heart can never be tamed

I shall never know the elation of her spirit
Never feel the ecstasy her touch provides
For she truly belongs to the ocean
This exquisite lady of the sea

I am left with an insatiable longing
An overwhelming ache to be set free
Cast adrift in a neverending
SEA OF DESIRE
