Bandstand Beach

From the west the fast winds blow,
By force and with lovely sound,
By and by my emotions grow,
And freshness is there me around.
Uplifting their heads, waves me reach,
And with stone and rocks they collide,
And sprinkles water on me on the beach,
And I try taking my notebook aside.

O wind! Thou touches the Arabian Sea,
That comes from the holiest place,
And so you lovely and dear to me,
Cause therein thou bring peace and grace.
May you blow through my sad heat,
And bestow me might to face the world,
O thou current and love thy art!
So Wash with love my every word.

Now darkness begins growing much more,
And standing I am not single fellow,
Lovers gather with beloveds on the shore,
Busy in love and romance but slow.
Who is true mate on the way of love?
I've remained my aspirations with me,
Like twinkling stars so high above,
But reflection is merely in the sea.

Like twinkling stars so high above, ...................lovely poem and the mentioned line is the best description of the poem......
Lovely rich prose in this effort. The wind, the sea, the lovers, the beach, I can feel it all as you write it. Imagery is beautiful. Love is in the very air you breathe and the wind carries it where it will. The sea is restless as are the lovers and those with no lover for the right one has not yet appeared Very nice poem and well written.
very restful write,1st stanza is very peaceful, you descibe the attraction of the sea verywell
BEACH--has multiple poetic connotations---and you penned then through poetic prism-lovely
I could understand the poet wish to be tranquility of peace, love and reality. Sometimes nature will blow away all the uneasy feeling and heartache. I find the rhythm are smooth as words usage is reader friendly. Keep your good work.
