Array ( [sid] => 137804 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => Tongue Tide [time] => 2007-10-12 16:13:49 [hometext] => I found the title last night, and ran with it from there [bodytext] =>
Tongue Tide

Words now surge,
Crash and merge
Against clenched teeth.
Receding, then
They pool again
Somewhere… underneath.

Mood is the moon
Affecting tune
As the skookumchuck,
This raging river,
Dances and shivers
Through the mud and muck.

They ebb and flow
As currents grow.
Emotion is a hurricane.
Winds will scream
And whip the stream.
Dam breaks from weight of rain.

Common sense is
Trapped in suspense
Within the undertow.
When floods subside
And storm has died
Waves of healing then, bestow.

Naz ,

I really enjoyed this poem, it was very active and lively. Also, I thought the rhyming pattern was unique and interesting. I loved the metaphore using the rushing ebb and flow of rushing water...and when the storm subsides "waves of healing bestow" Also, a lot of creative imagery.

Well done my friend,

Terry/Will

Naz, a terrific naturalistic metaphor for the behaviours, feelings and actions that roll and pitch within us. Top read, my friend, inspired.

Truly a wonderful write....right from Tongue Tide..play on words to the ending waves of the healing tides. The flow of life being so much in balance with the flow of natures force is done to perfection in your work. Magnificent piece.

Now that was a strong piece, with a good flow! Strong, yet full of grace. It seems almost careless, as if it took no sweat to write, but then it seems so well done, that I rethink the first thought. Well done.
Take care, David
