Oh what a sad sight
When I went to the beach tonight
Twelve jellyfish washed up on the beach
Caught out by the tide, the sea's out of reach
Like transparent gelatinous dinner plates lying on the sand
The swirling tide confused them – now they've died on dry land

beach, bereavement, day, goodbye, nature, solitude,
I did not catch the dying day’s last melting
Nor heard its final sigh as it drifted into the deep blue
It is now lost in the many folds of memory
Partially stark and accurate, partially muffled in fog
And the complete original gone forever
I did not say goodbye
If only time would hesitate
The dew drops to hardened diamonds before the sun
Time to hold on
To feel the softest sand before it fades to cold black
To hear the sparrows last song
But the warm honey melted all away before I knew
So I will greet the next
And know that it too will melt
The golden fall leaves are so beautiful
But I love the green the best
I will look long for the green
And a new day awaits
Partners in rhythm
Each following another,
To die on the beach.

angst, sympathy, granddaughter,
I wish my granddaughter paper dolls:
"Princess Elizabeth and Margaret Rose,"
circa 1940s. I wish her pick-up sticks
of rainbow colors, or a rubber ball,
Say, and its metallic jacks. I
wish her a Monopoly board, lots
of property---rows of dominoes
as black as the hearts
of those bad boys who ran away. "I wish,
I wish, with all my heart," says E.
with wave of good witch
Glinda's starry wand, while I ask
Bring Elizabeth back
that heartless pack who
would not let her play.

The Apple PASTURE
Oh how I long
To drift into the apple pasture.
Were once was and all well meet.
A pure and dear site.
Where silver reflection cover the still waters that holds the golden
grains of morality and the grazing souls lie young amounce no stars.
Oh how I long
To drift into the apple pasture
Were winds smell of melon and the trees whisper spring corals in the mellow dark and best of light and time creeps into no tomorrow.
beach, best friend, grave, ocean, sea, together, uplifting,
My name is here,
But you'll not find me.
I am with my best friends
Near the clear, salt sea.
We are in the wind,
In the ocean's roar:
On the smooth, cool stones
Of some sandy shore.
We are in the waves,
As they break on the rocks.
Here time has no meaning,
The seasons are clocks.
We are never alone
In this place by the sea.
We are always together,
As good friends will be.
We did not decay:
Turn to rot, then to bone.
We're not part of the earth;
It is not our last home.
We've had a good laugh,
My old friends and me.
We've escaped the dark grave,
By the clear, salt sea.

death, introspection, nature,
it laid so softly on its powdered side
amongst a million(tomb)stones
a splash of wing-orange and black
shore winds wished to give it back
to the white roses and sapphired sun
that swirled the garden sky-
but it was forever dead
its soul having fled
its cage of silk and bone
i whispered a simple prayer
( a childish thing to do)...
to a god who may not have cared.
then glanced about to make sure
that we were alone...
I was honored to witness
this graceful demise of a monarch
that flew straight into stone
turned me back into a heart
forever flitting about,
the wind blown shores of life-

read me a poem today
whose lines I've heard before,
bur where and when,
I couldn't tell:
"the shortest road is the one
that you know,
the longest road is the one
that you love"
soaked in deep thoughts,
I sat there for hours and hours
my eyes shut, lips dry
waiting for further clues
until, as a sudden,
the 'longest way' part rang a bell
I got off the chair,
opened my arms wide towards the ocean
hugged and kissed the wind,
the almightiest messenger of them all,
for making me feel again
beach, death, sea,
Windless, the somber winter shore is welded
imperceptibly to the ashen water, the
horizon hemmed by distant dams of fog.
Gloveless, the chalky hands stand out
starkly in the pervasive greyness,
charcoal vestments completing
the monochromatic movement.
Gritless, the soft sand absorbs all.
The solemn sea tastes of tears,
warmer water, almost amniotic,
the all-mother's hypnotic allure.
Relentless, a distant bell dutifully tolls.
The shivering figure rises, reluctantly
trudging to the waiting limousine.

A full moon night
to my delight
what is so wrong
with doing what's right
nothing is right
after so long
no use in complaining
time to move on
The Dream Water one day
might take me away
farther from the comfort
I float on my back
then shut my eyes
my body now sinking
into ocean arms open wide
Now swallow your son
back to his nature
when he is no longer
needed to stay here
the next generation
are dooming themselves
they need my experience
to guide them through hell
Why should I bother
on my own, I strive through
I turn my back on the thought
of bothering to save you
alone in this world
my, is it spacious
I'm finally smiling,
never so gracious.

beach, death, grief, i miss you, moon, ocean,
Tonight, I view the lovely full moon,
near the ocean on a lonely sand dune,
with memories of my only true love,
who is watching me from far above.
My only solace is a haunting tune.
beach, eulogy, eve, heart, inspirational, introspection, spiritual,
Little by little
the sand slips between my toes
Little by little
my heart turns to stone
Little by little
stone corrodes to sand
falling between my toes

the seed caste onto the stone, and
in seed it is on it's own
never to stretch root, or
finding the thinnest stress to
pregnant ground and
the seed caste onto the stone
though no shape will it ever go
oblong roll along a stony
until it is split sent into the high-
and sent again
allah, angel, autumn, beach, bereavement, bird, care,
Kashmir is the heaven as they say
Fom years i have been watching deaths at the bay
Some come with metals,some burn the petals
Here you are safer only if you stay dumb
With all oppression i am numb
Guns they carry like peacemaking gadgets
Bombs they drop like ingle bells
Music to ears their canister shells
Blinded children and wailing mums
Democracy long back was locked in drums
No where I find my childhood chums
I will write and speak unless to all the oppressed freedom comes
Chantelle Anne Cooke
beach, boat, eulogy, father, ocean,
The sailor starts his adventure,
and the sea accepts his overture.
Birds flock in flight as a multiple sum,
while the vessel acts like a lost drum.
The ocean is his unstable map,
and the waves continue to clap.
The chef races around the boat,
catching a cup of wind to stay afloat.
His eyes flicker like amber flames,
as he remembers nature's games.
Now, he becomes part of the sky.
His boat, a wooden cloud ready to fly.
Dedicated to my father Blaize Cooke
September 30th 1938 to February 1st 2010
He sailed from San Diego with a crew to Hawaii in the 1960s.
animal, beach, death, ocean, sea,
Master of the sea
Smells blood from miles away
Swims with dominance
Sharp serrated teeth devours

Its a toe in the water,
its a trigger to start,
but its never the past as we can all be alike our hi-speed-art,
it's a reason to gloat,
like seasonal boast-
but it will never code,
honestly its just our doe.
Note that later in the year is your caustic example,
note that your remarks hash tag your preambles,
but I am not sinner in the clear,
but I have two goddamn ears,
you have an allegory of toss-ups for the gamble,
but no precepts.

It ripples and waves.
Its soothing to the touch and it runs over your body like an invisible blanket.
When life is too much to take I run to the water.
I've thought about lost loved ones over the view of the ocean.
As the waves ran over my toes and pulled back it was as if God was telling me I'm here.
I see your pain. I see your passion. In time I will wash them away.
When it rains, it stirs something inside of my heart. I know that as this storm shall pass, so will the trials of life.
The pain will be washed away. All will grow new again.
Pain is water.
Joy is water.
Life it water.
Water is beauty.
baby, beach, death, depression, destiny, horror, humanity,
I see his picture,his face like an angel,
captivating smile and sparkling eyes,
Swept away by the destiny,the faultless died!
Heart aches for him who deserved the life..
The little boy lying face down in the sand,
is the most heart wrenching thing I've seen in my life,
We humans are watching that inhumanity drowned him,
He sleeps peacefully and the world outcries!
angst, beach, dark, death, farewell, funeral, goodbye, introspection, life, metaphor, ocean,
The water in my chest,
And my eyes, they burn,
Lungs burst for air,
They are losing all their turn.
My eyes see the light,
That swims in the water,
And as I sink,
My lungs burn hotter.
I try to breathe,
Yet only choke,
I scratch for the surface,
Pray that it be broke.
But I know that I,
Will soon touch sand,
But only beneath the waves,
I will never touch land.
So I close my eyes,
To be engulfed by the dark,
As as i slip away,
Shines bright, the mark.
The deeper I go,
My dress cling to me,
As I drown,
To the bottomless sea.
