I saw them in their passing
Bring yourself to me, they said
Came I did, to winds of open arms
Though hidden I am
As will be the next day
Fewer will be my passings
Lighter will be they’re tongues
Waves upon stones
Which one am I

Beautiful images...I love to see the waves smashing on the rocks. Sometimes gently and sometimes with great power.

You sound peaceful and pleased jake. I hope I am reading your meaning in the poem as ell as taking my own meaning of it.

Take care. Thanks for sharing that.

This is very lovely jaketk.

The imagery is compelling.

I've read this numerous times and have come up with numerous interpretations,

and so ... at the risk of offense ... I'd like to ask if you would elaborate a little

on the thoughts behind the prose.

I'd like to understand it better to clarify which of my conjectures is the most accurate.

In such a small poem you've left a lot to the imagination ...

and Sharky is a curious fish.

Experience is a brutal teacher.
