The infinite mirrors of Ocean

Why do we call this planet Earth
when it is the vast waters that gave him the colour
no matter where you look a tide
will answer the moon call
a breeze will caress the seagull wing
a blade of sand will sting a thirsty eye

Where else but at the shore we will meet
the horizon line uniting sky and ocean vastness
a kiss in the infinite mirrors
a taste of no boundaries
a fear that the next tide
will slap and crumble all your certainties

When if not in the middle of storm
God becomes a dry shirt
a farewell tear
a letter never to be mailed
a list of sons abandoned at the shore

Again calm waters, little joyful waves
enormous blue wearing a sky
breeze to comb my curly hair
Ocean, the moon lover, you,
hung my star in your tide!

    A meticulously constructed cornucopia of poetic exegesis.A lustrous dynamo of insights that strive ceaselessly to extend the parameters of the reader’s perceptions.This poem exudes quality with a capital Q.

    Julia demonstrates a heightened feminine sensibility and a rare tenderness in her description of the earth and sky, moon and ocean that will delight every worshiper of the blue planet. Her sensitive literary imagination captures here an elusive perception/ special vision granted to few great seers and select awakened poets only—that the earth is sacred;existence is blessed and each moment is poetically sublime on it. This is less of a poem and more of a mystic experience, recalling Wordsworthian prophecies.
