My Words, My World

First drafts – A few pages in the large wilderness of the world of writing

Drown me

waves breaking
white foam
gulls crying
as the wind whips their voices

Behind closed eyes
salt sting
as the sea sighs its song
And laps and slaps the strand

Fickle mistress!
Ever moving
ever changing
From a shallow sigh this ocean roars
as the gull soars
lighter than the air
that carries its story
on the wings of the wind

  1. Beautiful imagery. Really moving too. Loved this 🙂

  2. Love the alliteration, assonance and internal rhymes throughout the first and second stanza… So atmospheric! 😊
