I have always had a fascination with the moon and the ocean…
Their connection is like an intimate relationship, of trust, surrender and guidance. I am lucky to live next to the ocean, and, upon witnessing the magic of the pull of the moon to the ocean; her tides, and our moods, it inspired me to write a love poem based on this infinite, sensual and ethereal bond we share with nature.
And We Would Be Free
by Zoe Quiney
I'd like you to understand me,
The way the moon understands
To trace your hands along my soul
Like waves as they gently kiss
I'd like you to take my hand
And hold a thousand different lives;
Reincarnated wishes and desires
Nestled against your skin.
You would paint my dreams
Among the stars,
Taking me to other worlds
With your words.
Our hearts would find the answers
To every forgotten question;
As we strip away the layers
To reveal our souls.
And we would be free.

I believe in creating your own heaven on earth and I find inspiration in people and places that calm my soul. I want to leave something meaningful behind in this lifetime, even if it's just a nice poem. You may connect with me on Facebook here. Or find me on my blog or tumbler here.”
