The song that kept playing above the sea

by Bérengère Balteau about a year ago in nature poetry
Report Story

Original poem

There was a song that kept playing above the sea

When the moon was comforting the ones who fell

And the clouds were cheering the mighty

When the waves were whispering to the poets

The song that kept playing above the sea

For during the night

Trees were covered with silk and tears

and my eyes,

blindly hearing

a soundless guilt

or just the song that kept playing above the sea

And perhaps this time I understood,

the sailor will always find a way

to see, to feel

the bottom of the sea

and the song

So holding on to the Helm

I felt Selene above me


There will always be a song above the sea

now close your eyes and see.

About the author

Bérengère Balteau

And I have spent hours wondering what to write here but, just like the sailor, I too, have found myself lost but always on my way. So I write, hoping that one day, my words will reach the red light above the cliff, and perhaps I'll know.
