Your Face I Drew Beneath the Blue-Green Ocean…

I was a drop of water in the ocean
which took me to the shore
And left me stranded,
A grain of sand it was that I became,
A million others like me
All the same…
I carefully observed the things around me,
I floated with the winds
So far from my seas,
I learned the ways of things that floated by,
Until the day arrived that I could fly…
Your face I drew beneath the blue green ocean,
Your body with the movement of the waves,
And when I touched the softness of your skin,
I turned back to the water I had been…
But now I wasn’t just a drop of ocean
I was the mighty current that flows through it,
And with the love that quietly remains,
I turned back to that grain of sand again…
So oceans once again could kiss my shoreline,
So I could kiss you softly while the breeze flows,
And takes you where the beach and oceans meet…
I was a drop of water in the ocean,
But I know you and me can reach the sea…

    Very beautiful photograph and words. The water play reminds me a bit of Octavio Paz’ love story about the wave. Do you know it? 🙂 Rebecca

    Francisco, this is beauty beyond perfection.
    It flows, it moves, “So oceans once again could kiss my shoreline,” Ay…. what a metaphor.
    We are not talking only beauty but also elegance. This poem is up there with the poems of the best. It takes my breath away.

    And the muse thrives in your words.
    “So oceans once again could kiss my shoreline,
    So I could kiss you softly while the breeze flows,”

    Excelente poema.
