Unleash - inspired by Writers Island prompt 25

Inspired by Writers Island prompt 25 Unleash
and this wondrous image entitled “Lost Boat” from Spanish artist Silvia

Unleash that vast ocean of you and
pour yourself onto my waiting shore.
I welcome the crashing waves of you,
eager for your salt water onslaught
to irrigate the parched land of me.
Too long on shore, I have become dry,
no rushing water or gulls cry in my dreams
until you arrived, with your fathomless depths
and the tidal wave I see in your blue green eyes.


Perhaps a follow on from this one written yesterday.

Beautiful words forming such a lovely image, an image beyond the picture... an image of love poured out by the blue green eyes.

Nicely written.
