Reflections on the Sea
by William Bednar
I love you like I love the inland sea,
In all your many moods and temperatures.
In silence, as in storms, the sea is free.
And you, with ocean eyes, have such allure
That leads a sailor on to certain death
In Winter waters, blanketed in ice.
You've bought my beating breast with heated breath,
And having known your lips, I've paid the price.
But as the Summer waters love the Sun,
So too, your eyes at rest are kind and warm,
And find my heart-strings, let them loose, undone,
And in these gentle waters, lose their form.
So if you ever wonder what I see
When looking in your eyes, I see the sea.
I have been swamped this past week and have not had a chance to write any new poetry, so I offer you another poem written by my son who is now almost a Junior in college! I have paired it with a photo I took of a Lake Michigan sunset.
