LOVE IS, ON THE OPEN SEA / Poem by Roula Pollard

LOVE IS, ON THE OPEN SEA

Do I love you my sea, like a window of hope in the wind
or like my heart on an operation table and, what else?
Like blossoming flower I watch you from distance.
Yes, I love you like an ancient sea
like a sea of love horizon
nutritive love, land
of the sea unseen
sails like the sea
on the sky

Not like a derelict sea, not like an orphan.
I love you like you love me, as
healing is performed by light
does people vision protect you?.
Do they drowned you
like war refugees, orphan
children on transit.
The sea is not an orphan
its parents, you and me
protect her, or try to
try to, we protect you
with love.
