The seas at my doorstep

Bone-weary but contented, when you return
you bring the vast seas to my doorstep
roaring capriciously and then tranquil, by turns
The tempestuous tides are forever interwoven
moving rhythmically with your heartbeats
responding automatically to the pull and push of the moody moon
The coarseness of the sand I feel on your palms
tingles my senses with gentle abrasion
The unfathomable depth of the oceans
reflects in your eyes
hiding subtly the underlying passion
I taste the sweetness of the brackish seas on your lips
a taste defying any definition
The sea and the moon are forever bound
sometimes close, at others afar
leaving my landlocked home awash with sea spray always.

  1. Goodness Punam, how beautifully you describe the sea being bought to your home by the return of your loved one. A big sigh from me over here. I felt that sandy salty air upon reading your poem

    “leaving my landlocked home awash with sea spray always.”

    Beautiful ❤️❤️

      1. Busier than a bee!!! I can somehow imagine this, you, flitting place to place, delivering honey as you go, pollinating flowers. That’s gorgeous and sounds delightful ❤️❤️❤️

  3. This is amazing. At this moment in time, it’s my favourite I’ve read from you.

    This is engraved in my mind:

    “…The sea and the moon are forever bound…”

    Sigh. Gorgeous.
