Words in sepia. It’s a 6.

Image result for noir beach odessa

sky meets horizon, magic the union

ocean backdrop soothes all but the most hardened

hearts once inseparable, now lay splintered

shards of intimacy scattered upon the sands

 discarded like the wrapping on a long forgotten gift

two paths diverging, in final unison, a wave farewell

    Such a beautiful Six of parting ways while being soothed by the ocean. The power and the beauty of the sea.

      Thank you, Pat. Imo, the sound of ocean waves gently lapping upon the shore is one of the most soothing sounds.

    good wordage
    (hey, apropos of totally nothing, other than what Paul said, “I have witnessed the ocean in a state in which there is no horizon. The sky is featureless and the sea is still. There is no line between down and up. Surely, given that the fear of falling is the most fundamental of instincts, this, as the Eagles said, ‘it could be heaven or it could be hell’.”

      Thanks, Clark.
      You are lucky to have witnessed such a thing. And so what was it for you? “heaven” or “hell”? 😀

    You are a poet, for sure. On purpose, the way the lines are set up that it could be two poems, one on the left the other on the right, and the third there in the middle, combined?

      Thanks, D. I appreciate your feedback. An artist’s interpretation.
      The line set up represents the characters relationship. No longer linear.
