Noise

La Jument, off the coast of Brittany, photograph by Jean Guichard 


I hear you in the roar of the sea
you wave your rage against me,
there is more noise in you than
a soul should bear.

I see you, beautiful storm,
your naked truth grows
in the heavy untamed waters,
a heart longing for peace.

  4. A raging heart is very unpredictable. Like the way you relate it to a raging sea! Nicely Kenia!

  6. Every second of this poem is loaded with rich imagery starting with the roar and the wave of rage! Very powerful! As if trapped in a cycle it desparately longs for a way to end.

  10. Lovely poem! I think letting out all anger actually helps us regain our peace, even if the process is painful.

  11. This took me way back. It so describes the rages of my now lovely daughter when she was a toddler. Probably not what you had in mind. But it's good to make connections.
