The waves, they speak
to me.
Beckon my name
and call me in. To their world.
Rush towards my feet,
swirl around
my ankles.

And if I pretend not to hear,
they crash against
the rock that I rest upon
and drench me
in a burst of spray.

Their roar silences
all other sounds
yet cannot fully drown out
my peals of
and wonder
as they entice
me in,
toss me up
and then hold on to me
as I fall back
into their mighty arms.

These waves. They will not relent
until I have
given myself up.
And begun to discover
who I am
all over again.

Oh, how I love waters. And how I love the way you romanticize words :)

Never attempted poetry much, maybe I will try again some day!

Many thanks! Glad you enjoyed the words! Yes, "unleash the inner poet" would be my advice to all writers. :)
