Safe Haven -poem

the spattering and splashing of the waves from the ocean striking and surging every movement

is like a dispute rushing and rustling in my head comes back bigger and greater in every


and as I lay my head unto your chest

I listened carefully to the silent beating of your heart

I am in a placid state, undisturbed, unruffled, waveless

you wrap your zealous arms around me

in a tender whisper you say “hush now my love, keep still”

there, in your loving arms, I found my sweetest and safest haven.




Written for and inspired by:


Inspired by the post and photograph of Gina from Singledust. I left a comment on her comment box and she said i should write a poem about it.

      1. i am joining in that hurray! and now also enjoying all the readers feedback both here and on my blog, this is truly such a special gift to me today.


  2. In our love’s arms we are safe. As it should be…
    Let distress un-stress, and let the ebb of waves erase worry.

    Too often our minds go in circles about the chaos of days events.
    Romance helps to sooth and smooth our ruffled emotions 🙂


    1. Thanks Joey.. “silent beating of your heart” could be interpreted in so many ways depending on how you want your message to be. It could mean the “stillness fo your love” could also mean ” loving words unspoken”..


  3. Very great post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wanted
    to say that I’ve truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts.
    After all I will be subscribing on your feed and I’m hoping
    you write again soon!


  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
