New Depths

Inspired by the English translation of “Agua” via an on-line translator. Not so good to learn the meaning of the original text, but great poetic suggestion. Though I don't know Spanish, the romance of the language comes through.

At surf’s edge I repose in the peace
of your presence where I lost you
know you are here,
yet all I have
is your smile reflecting
in the calm of morning mist
and waves,
your hair flowing
through my hands
I touch my feet
and the sand
gives way beneath them
I go to new depths
of your love.

  1. Thank you so much, it's beautifull and I feel really gratefull about it (my post it's just a small contribution to the poem). Anyway, I wrote the post "Agua" (Water) while I was listening the song "Cold Water" by Damien Rice.
