ahhh. What a nice relaxing poem. Unfortunatly, it left that bittersweet (more sweet than bitter though)taste in my mouth just as intended. Well done.

This is beautiful hoot_owl, I can relate to miles separating you from someone you love.
Wonderful poem.

Hi Ruth,
What can I say? What a great one you have written. I hope the ocean and land do not keep you two apart forever. Take care.

I love this one Hoot...living by the water I am partial to poems with an ocean theme..I have a great affinity with the sea and can totally relate to that feeling of being held in the arms of the sea, being rocked ever so gently to sleep and likening it to a lover's arms.This is full of beautiful imagery and subtle longing...a near oerfect piece! Hope he likes it...how can he not? :-)

Beautiful. I'm afraid that's all i can say about this poem...all other words are lost to me. I love the imagery...I can smell the salty air of the open sea.

Thank you for sharing such a beautiful poem.

Beowulf...yes, indeed those were my intentions

Tyson...with you as my inspiration, how could it not be good As far as how long seas and land seperate...I am hoping not long
