let’s just sit  in the dunes by the sea

nothing needs to be told

we shelter each other from cold

a ship in full sails to a far  destiny

as the waves sing their song

like drowned sailors who died a  long time ago

or are they just seagulls crying

let us stay by the sea

and listen to them

and don’t think at all about dying

not yet

    I am right there,
    by your side,
    holding your hand. 🙂

    Just out of interest where are your sea pictures taken? It looks like a place I would like to visit

    • Hi David 🙂 The pics are taken on the island here (Terschelling) , this one was taken last fall . As you see, no rocks, cliffs, not the dramatic beauty of your country at all, just a bit of sand but it is where I was born and always lived, so it is my home. 🙂

      It would be nice to have you visiting 🙂

    Soul mates in harmony…a wonderful expression and poem…a very romantic and tranquil setting.

  11. You brought in dying sailors and then the sea gulls and I felt sad… but then you gave hope and courage with your words…

    ‘and don’t think at all about dying
    not yet’

    I liked it very much…

    ॐ नमः शिवाय
    Om Namah Shivaya

    • Hi Sashi, thank you so much for liking! You know, as a child I would listen to the sounds of the sea that the wind brought in and try to imagine that they were voices and sounds coming all the way from England lol.

      I tried to leave a comment on your blog, but was disconnected, so just put it here : you are a great poet!

  12. I love how they shelter each other from the cold and ship in full sail to a far destiny. Beautiful and emotional.
