The Graveyard of the Sea

Through centuries of salt earth
the North Sea seeps

I've no problem with the theme - it's likely to stay until you feel you've managed to say what you wanted to.

This was worth waiting for!

thanks honest man, good point about the theme - I think you're probably right.

such a powerful ending, I like it a lot! coming to think of it, we don't have many poems about the Black Sea, but it's understandable, it doesn't shape up our life or landscape as it is the case with you (well except for the Danube Delta but this is quite an exotic place even for us, there are only some fishermen villages there).

thankyou roxana, I'm glad you like it. The Russian poet Anna Akhmatova has some lovely poems about the Black Sea. On a quick search on Romanian poets I had no idea Paul Celan was born in Romania!

Roxana said...

oh yes. and he wrote poetry in romanian also, I once wrote a paper on that :-)
