back from the deep

wave after vast wave

crashing down, staggering us

here comes another


cannot recover

squelched breath of too many dreams

spectered ocean teems


deep dark descending

unending fall, now halted

by exalted calls


distant, haunting tune

insistent, enchanting thrall

sirens’ sweet lagoon


remember? joy buoys

in the deep rediscover

her magical spell


we rise with this swell

breach, gasping for life’s inhale

exhausted, wracked, and pale yet

here to tell the tale

    Simply superb Chloe …. I love the last stanza. It’s epic

  2. such Haiku pearls strung of struggle and heartache;
    and the ultimately redemptive spirit and soul.
    Love and Hugs to you, sweet Chloe.

  3. You had me at the first line! Going from strength to strength, Chloe x

    I’m just voiceless – il y a une telle énergie dans ton poème – je pense que c’est la même que celle qui te fait danser. So, may be it is your Secret : la puissance infinie de la Mer…

      Ah, you are so wise and observant, my faraway friend. I believe you have “hit the nail on the head”–my passions for the sea and the dance are connected, feed and inspire each other. I am so grateful for your thoughtful, generous, lovely and insightful presence here, Frederic. xoxo
