Rhythmic Waves

Rivers, streams, creeks, lakes, ponds
I follow them through bramble and wooded trails
I trace their edges with my eyes
Watery autonomy with no outlet
Oceans call me to where I have lassoed my signature on rocky shores, markings of hues and shades of fuchsia sin; each one a reminder of the kind-less person I have been
Words drift in cerebral waters
I trace the restraints and know
Ebb and flow-even the tide knows not to overflow
Gently cradled by another hand and a sun-lit moon

Dversepoets.com Dungeons and derivatives….Pick one line from 8 of Sanaa’s poems and change at least one of the words, compose your own and unlock a dungeon. I believe I unlocked one. I am trying to take a break. I hope I did it right.


Her line…“I have left my signature on rocky shores, marked with hues and shades of fuchsia sin; each one a reminder of the kind of person I have been.” – the waters and wild.

    I’m captivated by the line: I trace their edges with my eyes ….. wow, that just totally drew me in and stoppered my breath! To drink one’s fill with the eyes …. so powerful.
    There’s such an lovely feeling to this piece, I can’t rather explain it, but instead, your words resonate because they feel like something, some aspect, experience I *know* in my bones and soul. Mesmerizing. 🙂

  5. I love how you put the line into your own context. I feel that the sins were cleaned by the sea.

    I love the ebb and flow of this. And you chose the same line too with a spin of your own.
