Sea around the lighthouse.

poem by: Christopher Russon
Written on Mar 08, 2017

I am a lighthouse
Wide and tall
The sea so fierce
Against my walls.

The night so dark
With stormy winds
I am a lighthouse 
Weathering everything.

My keeper now is safe inside
whisky neat by a nice warm fire
Unaware of the coming tide
He falls asleep the waves rise higher.

Tomorrow brings another day
And the sea will stay quite calm
The keeper will leave and go his way
But I will stay unharmed.

You have that power to transport people to your world of imagination. I felt I was there watching this lighthouse. For a moment I was it..
Piya Paul Mudgal commented:
Sometimes I was the sea, and next moment I was the one inside, taking shelter in my mighty abode.

Thank you so much for your comment.some light houses are just like living rooms And have all the comforts of modern day living.others are not even occupied.

I have a certain attraction towards lighthouses and the philosophy that revolves around these pillars of guidance. Your poem is very nice and reflects a small but beautiful aspect of the philosophy. Much liked. -T
