Songs of the Sea

Contributed by spike on Monday, 31st October 2016 @ 07:16:07 PM in AEST
Topic: goodbyepoetry


//and the oceans take it all,
which seems only right, given
that they birthed our lives
into the broader lightÖ/

you passed, not unexpected
but too soon all the same;
a gust of wind, a puff of air
extinguished your bright flame

so we consecrated you in fire,
and cried our tears of grief;
then gathered up your ashes
and said our blessings, brief

and your last great journey
brought us, to this crescent shore,
to respect your formal wishes
for the sea that you adore

and we shall sing the songs of mourning
as she takes you to her breast,
and blankets you in water
for this, your final rest.

//// So beautiful. Such an appropriate thing to do and this superb poem blends right into that.

Thank you and sorry for your loss.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
