Ugly Beauty

Ugly Beauty

Raging waters
Rocky shores
The waves attack
White and wide
Like an ugly army
Invades my mind
My face
My home
My space

Only to retreat
Back to its womb
And the pull is deep
The pull is fierce

Sediment usurped
Secrets of the sand splayed
Across the sparkly shore


The sun shines
No. She radiates
Through the fuzzy grey-blue sheer
A welcome house-guest
Bringing with her a dear old friend
A warm, balmy beauty
Sweeping through the leaves of the palm trees
(The way Rain runs its fingers through my hair)
The elegant wings of an eagle
Glide through the open air

Continuity or consequence?
Doesn’t matter
This is
My home

  1. The poem is as soothing as the soft breeze in your face by the shore. Excellent poem.
