Waves – dVerse Nature challenge

Soft morning waves greet my meditative gaze.

The sea churning out the rough rip roaring waves from last night storm no longer visible like that which bonded us together no longer exist.

No angry sky flashing dagger lights like that of my eyes as you ripped my heart into matching shards.

No murky froth crashing on the dark heavy sands like that of the twisted words that tried to break my spirit.

No oppressive heat making it unbearable to breathe like that of your cold manipulative hold that tried to control my freedom.

A new day wrought with peaceful tranquil waters like that of my soul seeking a deep calm as the cool ocean’s blue lap at my feet.

Reminding me I can survive any storm and will live in peace without your darkness, surrounded by purifying waves that bring in fresh beginnings and take away all that is stale.


Thanks for the challenge dVerse.

    Good golly! This got angry in a hurry! I love that you opened with such a peaceful line and then completely changed the mood from the next line down. I hope you found healing in the expression. There is so much power in words. But when you keep them inside you, they fester. (You know, those nasty thoughts on repeat in your brain.) However, writing them down can often bring you peace. Well done.

    Wow…this is a powerful tsunami of emotion….so full of emotion that you’ve depicted so palpably through your comparisons with nature. I LOVE this 🙂 Thank you for linking up to my prompt with this gorgeous entry, Lyn!

  6. Wonderful. I used to live near the Pacific–so many moods the ocean shares with us!
