stranded

tumultous wave
ebb & flow in fractured light
stranded on the sand
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
crashing thoughts
stranded in verbal debris
pause of silence
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
chaos all around
washed on the shore of my need
island moment
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
one single impression
celebrate national poetry month!

I love the second one, often my thoughts gets lost in jumble of other thoughts but stopping to think don't bring them back or make them clearer

"Washed on the shore of my need'. Wow! I loved this. Fabulous!

That first one reminds me of how fragile seem waves when they break on the shore. Responsible for moving the seas east and west, rolling for miles and miles, they dissolve in the sand and seem like nothing.

All of these are very good. Thanks.

The 1st one is me: lots of tumult which is lost in the tumult. Nothing resolved except more stranded waves. Beautiful.

Vixen said...

All of them were so wonderful! I really liked the second one, especially the part "stranded in verbal debris". Fabulous.

Raven said...

These are all good... If I had to pick a favorite it would be a toss-up (can't do it in other words) between the first and second.

gardenpath said...

Island moment, I love that. All so fitting, my favorite is the third.

All are so good. And I like the second one best!

Quiet Paths said...

Oh, we both went in somewhat the same direction this week. These are very delicate and powerful at the same time.

Billy said...

I think they all work individually or as a single poem, the latter being how they struck me. Simply beautiful.

tumblewords said...

Lovely! They are all so wonderful, I'm glad I don't have to choose just one.

This is more then lovely. I love the ocean and the image of the tide ebbing. So much is lost with the tide.
Beautiful.

I’m late to visit because ‘life’ got in the way, but I did publish two ‘week 6’ posts for One Single Impression: Stranded ... one on each of my blogs on Wednesday of last week and I hope you’ll find time to visit. They’re here: Heliocopter Rescue and Polar Bears
Hugs and blessings,
