Flirty Med

Uneven rocksShe turned on the charm today,
Flirting with every rock in reach
Raking her lacy fingers in light caresses along the storm breakers.
She was enticing, showing off her celadon frilly dress,
Feeding the hungry stares of heat starved visitors
Grazing a foot here, submerging toes there,
Prompting gasps of surprise and unexpected delight.

The Med put on a show, smiled and winked at the sky,
Waved at a sail floating by and teased wanderers plying the sand.
She played with wet slurping sounds on the fringes;
Swirled eddies like a girl twists her hair,
Then playfully flung salty drops at the piers
But sent sedate and coy ripples
In shallow spots where small children waded.

In a hiss,
A sucking of air,
Then a slap and a hush of silence
Before the dying whispers of a wave
And the arrival of another.

The Med was magical,
 Primal,  and eternal.

  1. Magnifique.
    Comme toujours.
    Tu fais vivre la mer avec tes mots perspicaces.


  2. Comme c’est frais, un plaisir presqu’enfantin me parcoure a la lecture de ce poeme. Helas, pour les 3 prochaines semaines, je suis privee de Med, mais je saurai me rattraper. Merci Emmylgant. Penses-tu le traduire en Francais?

      Merci bien. Non, je n’ai pas pense a le traduire… Tu connais mes “traductions”, elles demandent un remaniement presque total… Mais j’y reflechirai. Je suis bien contente que celui-ci t’ait plu.


      • Oui la traduction c’est vraiment une reecriture. Et c’est encore plus difficile quand c’est pour tes propres textes, alors poemes!: il faut vraiment etre double ou quadruple.

    “showing off her celadon frilly dress” – bomb diggity

    I am never disappointed when I visit you. Your written words are always so beautiful and descriptive, I might be there myself, and then you add that extra something special, your own artistry to make the reading a pure delight, as always! 🙂

    Emm, you’re just prejudiced because that’s where you live. C’mon, gimme a break! After all, it’s just “The Med”. …and it’s beautiful, as you describe it, my dear…, beautifully.
