By the side of the Sea
She gives me glimpses

of distance lost
Of figures dancing
upon mirrors beyond time

Through thought
I am writing calligraphic lines
that make the water glisten
in orbits of reflection

Two white swans answer
swimming closer towards me
At first glance they offer me
their compassion

One by one they lower
their ivory necks
One sips in fresh water

The other curls up
resting its head
upon it`s featheredness

From it`s crib
the swan
beholds me

It sails like a small
white boat
behind the other

This moment
was meant
that way

Hello Dante, thank you for your feedback on my poem. This poem is rather special to me, It is based upon a real moment which happened to me, Indeed it is also based on emotions or perhaps letting go of it...

Lovely! It makes me think about an emotion that's still vivid. Also, I can perceive tenderness .
