#NatureSpeaks: 30 #Poems in 30 Days – Day 8: By the Ocean, by Daphny

As the sun rose
we were still by the shore,
just us; you and I

the tide passing through us

no dusk nor dawn
neither the oceans roar
could make us leave

as we got lost in each other’s embrace

the ocean starts to calm
even the sun shined through the storms
as a new chapter of us unfold

when the sun raised by the ocean.

By the Ocean was inspired by the poem Ocean and Sand. You can read more of Daphny’s poetry at The Introvert Writer.

Butterflies in the Night

I sit on the front porch
considering
the moon, and the train
coming
down the tracks

I can feel it, the anxiety
the streets, and this sensation
not

missing a beat

Kinda like when you see a star
in the sky

you relate to it

it’s a mirror image of you, and you know why

Like is like this at times
full of whispers of insight

We simply need to remain open
to

the butterflies in the night

heart strong

the pale
and lambent sky
is dried

and full of mist

swirling in colors, made of notes
a song

adrift

in the east
where my heart is strong
and just enough

with you

the music of my life
and my one and only love
