Love carries the heart to places it should not go

Deep within the recesses of the waves

Perspicacious judgment leaves the moment

Longing for the want as the water moves to and fro

Who is this woman who captivates the heart

Salient dreams nourish the gentle graciousness

As the coy smile appears on her lips

Demeanor revealing  the finer art

The plaintive cry of the Salish Sea

Woman so strong…mesmerizing…calling

Yet deftly refraining…beckoning me onward

Quietly drifting over the waters to me
