The Little Wave A Childrens Story

Once the North wind made love with the sea





and a tiny little wave soon came to be





Father Wind would guide him as he grew





His Mother was the sea he traveled through



and as they brought him closer to the shore



each day he would grow a little more



and safe within the arms of Mother Sea



He imagined just how big he'd grow to be



The handsome foam that formed upon his crest



was among his mothers gifts that he loved best



and the harder that his Father Wind would blow



the larger and the stronger he would grow



One day a fearsome sound came to his ear



an awful sound that filled his heart with fear





he feared something he couldn't understand



when he saw the other waves crash on the sand





He wept as he drew closer to the shore



for it seemed to him he soon would be no more



He cried and cried, "Alas! Oh woe is me."



with mortal fear of what was soon to be





When his Father and his Mother heard him cry



they told thier weeping wave,, "You will not die."



"There is a gift you must deliver to the sand



then simply return to our love where you began





You'll sleep a while with Mother Sea, and then



Father Wind will guide you once again

Very good visual images. Almost like riding that wave in its sincerity.

Very good Puck! Love it.

Thank you. I appreciate that.

good

The true gift is in the writer and must be delivered throughout the land. A take from a line your poem but nevertheless true. Find a publisher for some of your writing as you have been very blessed with a wonderful talent. Original, sensitive and beautifully written. I would love a copy. Mail me and I'll give you an address.

I really loved this, Puck! It's as though you're on a journey as you're reading this! Good stuff! :)

Thank you so much lightRain!

Thank you Brut.

Yeah Puck. It felt like a spiritual experience reading it. This is shining with beauty and truth.<br />
*Brut stands and applauds Puck*<br />
Awesome.

Thank you all. This is another poem that I pulled out of the vault. I'm trying to get back into my writing.

That was beautiful. Brought tears to my eyes!

Absolutely loved this story!<br />

We too can grow and succeed with what we've been given by our parents. We may not be "the end all" and "the best" but we all bring with us something to the earth to leave behind in the sand before we go back again to where we've come from.
