Repost and for 1000 posts....

   
Evenings there upon the cliffs,
just at sunset, the pelicans play,
the ocean stirs the flow of waves
in darkness, running over wet soft earth

The soul can be heard,
sounds of sea swelling,
falling, breathing

Rising up on it's haunt against
the mouth of the caves,
splitting the flowers against
the sea colliding with the mountain

Gently arousing the flow for the
mountain, for the sea to chant your
name to the night sky,

Your aroma still lingers
when I stand there,
still on soft ground,
still lingers as the ocean mist
spreads you over the earth

Spreads you over me,
I find peace again

In memory





*****


Nothing Beautiful In This World
Is Ever Really Lost
All Things Beloved
Live on In Our Hearts...Forever."

Well I am glad you re-posted this as it was a new one to me, and left me with a taste of salt water on my tongue, as it was very vivid imagery.  Congratulations on your 1000th post Lauren, well done indeed.

Lauren,

Congratulations on your 1000th post, my friend.  I've always wanted to visit Oregon and this poem reminds me of why.  This is lovely and for me, carries some underlying thoughts.  Thank you.

Wonderful poem of reflection. It just glows in the reader's mind.  Like these lines...

          "The soul can be heard,
            sounds of sea swelling,
            falling, breathing."

Lonely with a dash of melancholy but beautiful!
