Brave Waves

A couple of weeks ago whilst walking in the heavy rain, I began connecting to my resilience. All sorts of powerful images were coming to mind and I couldn’t wait to capture them into the notes section of my phone and write a poem. Just at the point of completion the raindrops on my phone jammed the delete key and my whole poem was erased! I returned home deflated and then decided, in the true spirit of resilience to write the thing again. It came out differently and yet I still felt happy and, more importantly, expressed!

Relentless

Thrash me hard into the walls against the storm raged pier

Smash me down, I’ll take it all, and still I’ll reappear

Scrape my legs against the rocks, push my head in the sand

My soul has seen a thousand knocks, each time I fall, I stand

Engulf me with your reckless waves, drop me from seagull’s height

You’ll see with time that I won’t cave, I’ll still get up and fight

Rock my boat, deflate my sails, reduce my bones to dust

The passion in my heart won’t pale, nor will my Truth or Trust

For life is precious and immense, each breath a brand new start

and Love is all that can make sense to my wide, hungry heart

Wash me up into the bay, exhausted and confused

For I’ll come back in my own way – it’s Yes to Life, I choose

  1. Lovely writing, “Rock my boat, deflate my sails, reduce my bones to dust

    The passion in my heart won’t pale, nor will my Truth or Trust”

    Beautiful and vivid piece and I really like the lines about “love and your hungry heart.”
    Have a great week, Love Joni
