no more smooth seas

few know as I do
waves swelling to
inches from heaven

few know as I do
all waves must fall

no more smooth seas
my ship will ride you
to the ocean's floor

in the rare air
between towering peaks
in the throat of the storm

"my ship will ride you to the oceans floor"

i come here empty and leave marvelously full!

Wow.

Yes, that's the phrase that got me, too.

Great shot to accompany it, too.

ss--I feel so happy that you feel satisfied coming here--that's what keeps me going!

mb--Thanks-- I took the photo my first day with my new camera--but it had too many pixels to fit on Blogger. Then by "coincidence" I wrote the poem (not with the picture in mind at all) and then found the technology to lower the pixels--
guess it wasn't coincidence, was it...

I can't believe that guy was fishing in those waves!

Coincidence or creativity, it's the perfect match!

It is so long since my seas have been smooth... firebird I love what you do with words - they speak to my heart, no, they speak my heart.
