Reminds me

IMG_1315 (1)

The sea reminds me of you.

But here

with lake water 

rushing sandy beaches

waves breaking 

violently upon the shore

I am yet again overwhelmed 

with thoughts of you.

Like sea water

gathering in tide pools

my soul fills with your essence

and I am undone

in the remembering.

Passionate

FullSizeRender

I am passionate

I am passionate about many things

My children

Their intelligence, humor, laughter, kindness

Their beautiful souls

Words

The reading, the writing

The gifting of and receiving

The sea

The smells, the sounds, the feel, the power

How it inspires, soothes, invigorates me

Clouds

The pleasure I get from the endless beauty in the sky

Which lets my imagination run free

Architecture

The scope, the breadth, the creativity

The sheer genius of classic buildings and façades 

Which have stood the test of time

Watercolors and pastels

Powerful mediums that affect us

Not in bold voices

But in soft whispers

Black and white photography

To me, more visually arresting than color at times

Passion and depth expressed in ways that leave the subject

Open to interpretation by the viewer

Music

From Nocturne No. 2 by Chopin

Which touches the depths of my soul in romantic melancholy

To a Lana Del Rey song

Which makes my body move in ways

It didn’t realize it could

Slow and sweetly sensual

For my audience of one

And you

Most especially you

From the top of your head

To the tips of your toes

And all the spaces in between

I am passionate

About you

Distant skies

FullSizeRender2

Let us disappear

into the distant skies.

To a land

far removed from here.

Where the sea sings to us

with every passionate wave

upon the shore

and the afternoon rain

beats softly upon the window panes.

A place where we can

get lost in the learning and knowing

as you peel away my inhibitions

along with my clothes.

My restless spirit

Ireland, June 2016

My heart will be heavy

when I leave the sea.

As I get older

the need for this renewal

is keen.

My longing 

palpable.

My restless spirit

always finding its home

amid the waves.

Depths

FullSizeRender

There is a pleasure to be had

in waiting upon the shore

for the tide to arrive.

To rush the beach

in a fury

in a passionate arrival.

.

It is the pleasure to be had

in anticipation

that arouses my spirit

which makes me feel alive

as I ponder the depths of my soul.

The desires that lay beneath my skin

those that I cannot imagine

but which I want him to unveil.

.

I hunger to swim within the depths

to go deeper and deeper

my breath becoming harder to catch

frightening and thrilling

all at once.

Never knowing what I will find

as the light recedes and darkness engulfs me

but knowing that whatever it is

I will forever be changed.

I will be

deep

and dark

and wild.

.

Like the sea.

Conversations with the moon

Because my love affair with the sea is enhanced by my love of the moon and her ethereal beauty…

Siren Whispers

She is in conversation

With the moon

It speaks silently to her

Understanding

Her thoughts

Her dreams

Her wishes

Comforting her in its silence

Allowing her thoughts to form

Into something cohesive

The proximity to her beloved sea

Consoles her soul

The lapping of the waves

A haunting lullaby

That she lets herself

Get lost in
