Poem About Poetry - Poem For Clearing Thoughts

beach drizzle
the strong wind
a classical song
touching the rawness
of my heart
the vast sea
lurches forward
the stronger waves
swarming over
the weaker ones
pushing them onto land
in successive surge
an adagio played out
to a wondrous cheer
on and on they go
nearby the palm trees
like me could not help
but sigh in admiration
a standing ovation
from that corner of my heart
the waves keep pounding on

I love it. This has a strong sense of the beat of the ocean and your relationship with it. This is another sophisticated poem that you said you couldn't write. I like it when you do poetry without quoting another poet. I have long thought it detracted from your work. Good job. Raynette
