The Cliff and the Ocean

The rough rugged cliff dwells with the soft flowing ocean. They are opposites but together always. Theirs is a silent friendship of difference, when she needs her space she wanders further onto the beach but she always comes back. He stands strong and still not moved by her emotion and waits for her return.

    Carrie, your poem is just brilliant. Short, simple and powerful; full of emotive images…and so reflective of “human” nature! It goes perfectly with the picture…which just draws you into it…wondering about them both….
    Beautifully put together.

    Wonderful work, Carrie! I love the shot… right angle, right lens, right exposure, right composition… Bravisimo!! I also love your poem, beautiful words with duality of meaning. I only hope that the words are not coming out of the pain of personal experience. Keep up the great work!

    Peace & Love,

    Grouchy ;)

    Beautiful combination of image and words. . . very Zen like and a wonderfully poetic description of the balance of energies. . . both entities doing what they have done for thousands of years, basically unchanged. . it’s well complimented by the image. softness and durability in both halves of the whole. The very things that draw so many to the water’s edge. . .a faultless and unending balance we cannot hope to achieve. . .but certainly can aspire to.


  • Thank you Nicolas, your comment is poetry itself. I appreciate you taking the time to express this and read my work. ;)
