ebbing and flowing.

October 21, 2011

Hips rising up like the tide,
the swell growing thick inside,
warm and slow like sunlit sea foam,
ebbing and flowing,
ebbing and flowing,
ebbing and flowing,
roaring, frothing surf,
cresting wave over wave over wave,
then crashing to shore,
in a salty, heated downpour,
churning from the depths,
to slip slickened thighs,
subtle as the seagull’s cries.

    Erotic poem…I like the allusion to the Sea…apparently our birth place:)

  2. Upon reading “ebbing and flowing” I cannot help but share with you an “oldie but goodie” that I wrote way back in yesteryear some where…


    And that I recently hid in the basement of the website A Road Mood. Hope I’m not being too presumptuous here…

  3. I absolutely love this – amalgamating two of the greatest forces in nature in such a sensuous way… brilliant!

  4. Beautiful word picture here. I’ve always enjoyed using water as the comparison and base for poetry. I likes it a lot!

    Love the piece. Must be something in the air. I just wrote this piece:

      I read your poem around 4:30 in the morning, and maybe it was the bleak mood I was in, but I was very much touched by it. I’ve saved it to my phone. Without knowing it, you may have described exactly how I’ve been feeling in my life. Drowning. But your poem gave me the little bit of hope I’m needing.

  6. I am a child of the ocean at heart. It has always been my closest friend. Your words are lovely and provocative. It stirs up a broth of feelings in my soul, from mystery and power, to sex and desire. A raw presentation of humanity and nature in a stunningly beautiful word image. You have a talent for crafting words. I’m glad I discovered your blog 🙂

    Oh, this is so beautiful. This is one of those rare pieces that totally pull me out of where I am into a new and wondrous world. Powerful!
