Object of my desire

Gooseberry poets
Eat the bitter earth but spit sweet on hungry paper,
Cloying fermented words
Much more than crushed grapes
Finally makes me tell you,
You’re all I desire.
Objective reached but never conquered
Proud sea
Let me lose myself in you

    yes the sea is proud and it is easy to lose ourselves inside the sea. We can do this on the shore or just wading in and allowing it to over come us well done thank you

    what a smart one,
    unbeatable humor.

    gooseberry poets
    are those
    who enjoy shows,
    and have fun doing poetic toes.

    Hi Mark! Beautiful poem… as usual!
    Are you really near the sea right now?… In Auroville, I myself live (by choice) on the shore of the Indian Ocean: the Coast of Coromandel, part of the Bay of Bengal. Are these your real feelings towards the sea, or rather your ‘poetic feelings’, if I may put it that way?…

      I don’t live by the sea Bhaga, although I’d love to someday and recently spent my holiday by the sea in Cornwall. I think the sea will always speak to us, when we are by it, and on a spiritual level, which is what I meant here.

    Awesome poem! I take it this a tribute to the Gooseberry Garden?
