Afternoon Reflection

Maine and More 285

As the afternoon sun,

gently reflects on the ocean,

as sparkles dance on the surface,

I think of you, and our love.

Once our love was so brilliant,

we could see nothing else,

danger of intensity,

consumed with each other.

With time, sun still bright,

yet knowing there was a horizon,

more under the surface,

life in the depths,

the pain of the storms,

and yet stronger,

two people rowing,

in the same direction,

stronger than the one.

And now the sun is softer,

yet the love is deeper,

never a sun setting,

but sparkles,

dancing on the ocean,

pointing us,

to the horizon.

Peace and blessings to everyone.

  1. I love this! We are thinking the same except you are thinking of love that is sweet! I’m just thinking about summer and how I should be swimming instead of working! 😀 I love this photo! So beautiful as is the poem! 😀
