All the tides’ Mist ~a poem by Linda Willows

Peace not leaving,
life receding.
Tides revealing,
hearts repealing.
Sands leave naked footprints sealing
vows to mark all time once printed
into fate as if thus minted.

Peace not rupted,
life corrupted.
Come to pay some dismal due.
Could the dawn have known eve’s hue,
it would have held its’ breath for you.

Peace not leaving,
life receding.
All the tides
prepare to go.
Where they wander no one tells
but yonder dreams far place to fell…
must capture the lost in such deep spell.

Peace not leaving,
life receding.
Come back, come forward, come to me
Counting nothing, let all be.
Life finds the rhythm of the sea.
Float me with you; carry me too.
I’ll be light as the Mist
as it flies away with you.

  5. “Could the dawn have known eve’s hue, it would have held its’ breath for you.” The grace of these words resonates deeply with me, as does your beautiful poem. I, too, love the spirit of the sea; I feel it’s soul and its heartbeat as my own. This poem held me spellbound … there is a wealth of wisdom here. ~ Much love, Julie xoxox
