Sometimes …


in my inner world,

I seek the serenity of the sea

in memories of that moment

when a stillness smooths the tide

and the slowed pulse of the ocean

calms the tremor in my veins,

and soothes me …

and the air and waves meld

in lambent equanimity.

Then unquiet thoughts like clouds

clear from my mind’s sky

and I hear,

in the gentle lapping

at the rippled water’s edge,

a lilting lullaby,

and feel the rhythmic resonance

of a wild storm quelled … .

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
