A cork is tossed amid tumultuous seas
bouncing bobbing ~ return to me
Your hands through waves, reach forward
only to retract, to lie awash within the crests
of silent white ~ the colour of perfection
and completion, bring home to me yourself
Fight the horridness of storms that may
seal your fate, rise up to fight the vehement
waves that brew, for my hand reaches out
to you, to save the sanity within
I shall protect and guide against
the currents great and small ~ if you
will let me be your rock
within my arms you shall be safe.
Lovely Jenny, beautifully concluded, with some great images within.
Thank you so much Michael ~ I’m happy and as they say ‘Fait Accompli’ 🙂
This is beautiful and love the imagery.

lovely jen and i think we all need someone with open arms to catch us once in a while when we find ourselves bobbing out at sea.
Thanks Beth ~ yes someone needs to be there to stop us going under ~ smiles xx

I’m pleased when I’m even close. Poetry isn’t my forte.
I write but sadly I can’t understand many poets with their Metaphors etc ~ leaves me shaking my head. My writing style is different – more ..I guess what you see is what it is, if that makes sense. You did well hun 🙂 x
I don’t understand poetry much either but I do get yours. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

Thank you so very much lovely lady. x
if you are a cork in the ocean, the important thing to remember is that even among the storms and being tossed, you wont sink…you wont be allowed to sink….smiles.
