Searching for Signs!


Pic credit - personal collection















searching for signs among the rocks
drifting far from the wooden docks
watching waves break under my feet
catching the oceans rhythm and beat

whispering in the breeze  my dreams
high floating clouds filtered sunbeams
my words melt in the mid-day heat
catching the oceans rhythm and beat

sparkling message, hidden from view
salted tears, my heart thinks of you
vast sea lost wandering souls meet
catching the oceans rhythm and beat

searching for signs among the rocks
catching the oceans rhythm and beat

Author's note: I was on the coast
climbing some rocks and found
this hidden gift.


Trying my hand at a Kyrielle Sonnet

  1. I like the idea of searching for/ finding signs. I think if we spend time in nature for a while the message will become more and more clear.

  2. Very effective use of the form...the repetitions tie the stanzas together very effectively.

  4. When you search you shall find, such great flow as you searched for something one of a kind.

  7. I see this both as a metaphor and as the fisherman's wife waiting at sea... lovely effect of the repetition.

      I went to the coast and came across some great rocks and of course I had to explore and I am so delighted I did.

  10. When you listen and get the beat I'm sure the world lifts up treasures - poetically and fossil-ly - especially when those tears sting and we need a little light and hope

  12. One of the most beautiful things to do is walk by the oceans shore and observe the sea alive, the birds flying overhead, the shifting sands and the message of the rocks and know true happiness. What a treat to visit you today.

    1. Yes, I do enjoy a walk along the shore too bad I don't live closer to the ocean.

  13. Wow! I too search for signs, but seldom with such conspicuous success. Lovely words - wonderful evocative and transcendent sea to sky images - replete with a splendid surprise.

  18. What a cool discovery. I wonder what it means?

    "My words melt in the mid-day heat" is such a wonderful line. But who needs words when you have that kind of scenery all around you?

    1. That is true words weren't needed as I let nature speak and I listened.

    1. As, I looked at it I saw a couple of things ..the sun shines even in hard times, the light is always with you...perhaps, it is honoring the sun goddess...

    1. That is true - messages seem to just find a way to be seen or heard..floating at sea or between the waves and rocks...

  22. 'signs among the rocks' sounds very intriguing....I like the riddle kind of traveling..Maybe this is one of them...

  23. Hi human, Truedessa,

    And a significant meaning etched in the rock. A thoughtful pawem, my human friend. See what you can reach...on the beach.

    Pawsitive wishes,

  24. Hi Truedessa - I love clambering over rocks and lingering as the sea weaves in and out ... seeing the pools and just cogitating the world at large, but far away as I wander the coast ... cheers Hilary
