When dreams pull me under
I call out across the ocean
You meet me at  the shore
and there is nothing to  hold to
but silvery shadows that cross
and uncross in our slumbering sea.
I bend to you  fragile as  sea foam
tossed in wind rifts  released
from unfastened hands. 
This is how I love you
a prisoner of  repetition
like endless waves you come and go.

  1. I just love the soft voice of love and longing with an edge of want for more in this poem Rene. The painting is also poetry in the most complimentary way. I’ll never tire of that deep affinity for sea and shore so much like our human life; at times a romantic ebb and flow and at other times, a tempest nothing can withstand. Beautifully done, Rene.

    1. I had to reblog this Rene, but something weird happened in the WordPress cloud. I couldn’t make an attribution to you. I will when I can figure this out. Thank you for this lovely gift this am.

    2. I’m so glad you enjoyed this Dan. Your comment is lovely and made my morning. 🤗 I’m having a problem with my comment’s order so I am wondering if that is why you has an issue as well. It will straight out eventually. 🌺

  2. I am fascinated by the idea of being a prisoner of repetition.
    Being a prisoner, anywhere, sounds an awful idea. Yet, I yearn for such repetition, when I read your words.
    Silly me, I’m already there, here!
    You are the best poet, ever! xoxo

  4. You took me within the rise and fall of your words that lapped the gentle shoreline of a dreamy space in which I wish my own feet were immersed.. ❤ Beautiful Poetry Holly, just loved it ❤
