The Eternal Sea

December 28, 2007
By Anonymous

The sea roars like a pride of lions, Foamy white manes whipping in the wind, Sprinting forward with claws ready, Endlessly chasing the shore. I watch the pursuit from my window Until the muted sun descends To kiss the cheek of the earth And I am enveloped in a liquid black But the restless sea does not end its crashing, Determined pounding of the shore, Resounding in the core of the earth, Ceaseless, like the pulse of a body.

Favorite Quote:
"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne

Wow! I love your imagery!
