Moon and the Sea--By Mary A. Couch--United States

Moon and the Sea

moon saw
his love rise,
a young maiden
with flowing blue hair
from the sea’s crystal depth.
Love beats loud within his breast
gazing upon her perfect form.
He reached forth to take her in his arms
only to see her dissolve into foam.

  1. Hello Mary. I enjoyed reading "Moon and the Sea." I like the way you entwined romantic elements in it, with the Moon and the Sea as the leading characters. Very creative and well written. Thank you for sharing and continued blessings!

  3. Hello, Ms. Mary Couch! Your poem almost touches some mythology and ends in dramatic moment of "wishful thinking" - very clever, indeed! Sheri
