“The relentless tide” on contemplating the local seas #poem #poetry #verse

The relentless tide
Ever impelled
To restless without relent be
In search fruitless without end
For sanctuary elusive
Does search
As around the globe
It travels
Ever onward urged
As upon its fevered brow there dwells
The furrow of regret
At opportune opportunities squandered
For respite and repose permanent
When the world narratives
By the ruler of the lofty heavens and the earth below
Were writ
In accordance with edicts of old
Measured against deeds and the legacies
Of the histories of the distant future
Thus ever onwards is the prisoner
By the great tidal swells endlessly now captive held
At the behest immutable
Of the waxing and the waning of its overlord the mighty moon

    1. Oh thank you for spending so much time on it! I’m very grateful to you for your kind intetest.
      I’m glad that there are some new to you words in this one. I love words. There are so many in the dictionary that hardly ever get used.
      The longer I contemplate nature the more it seems to teach me.

      1. Yesss. I love words too. And true there are so many which we might never even know. That’s why I like reading so much, stumbling upon new ones.
        And nature I feel is the most powerful inspiration ever. And your poems do it justice. 🌞
