That’s why God loves mankindThat’s why God loves mankind

letter in a bottle
his heart excited
smashed the glass
looked inside
read three words
leave me alone

the waves laughed
tumbling to shore
shells clasped hands
he turned away
broken bottle
crumbled letter
shaking hands

seagulls walking the flood line
the wind salted his lips
feet sunk in wet sand
a new life

the sun winked an eye
he smiled
tore away his t-shirt
his breast kissed by her morning lips
a day to feel free

on top of the dunes
the white dress maiden
long hair waving
a long dreamed welcome

rushed down the beach
meeting half way
Neptune’s fork
drawing two hearts
in millions of sand grains

amidst the sea symphony
the hallelujah of birds
two Creation’s children
in the melting ballet
of love

they did not see the water
they did not see the sea
they did not hear the seabirds
calling at thee
they only heard their hearts beat
making them free
that’s why God is loving mankind



  1. Sometimes love is not found in expected places, but surprises us by being in front of us. My favourite line in your lovely poem is “amidst the sea symphony”. Q x

  2. ‘they only heard their hearts beat, making them free’ ~ lovely line, lovely poem! : )
