"Storm at Sea" by Robert Salmon‘Tempestuous Seas’ by Rohini Sunderam The Society December 4, 2020 Beauty, Poetry 21 Comments And when the time, oh Father, comes To cross this life’s tempestuous seas, Grant that my faith should not succumb, Hold in the end still true to thee. Let not the waves of doubt overflow, Let not my skeptic mind then shake, Let not the tempest through me blow, And help me still to keep the faith. Remind me, God, that I’m a child And in your hands forever more, Tempestuous seas will soon be mild And I shall reach that promised shore. Then in your arms I’ll finally rest Safely upon your gentle breast. Rohini Sunderam is author of Corpoetry – Desert Flower – Five Lives One Day in Bahrain published by Ex-L-Ence Publishing.

Reply Rohini Sunderam December 4, 2020 Thank you! I always look forward to see the art used along with the poem. It is always done to perfection. Reply Roren December 4, 2020 ROHINI: it is a beautiful poem. Congratulations! anjan muhury December 5, 2020 You are able to artfully express the core of any human’s mind. That of knowing that life is an adventure to be faced with your doubts, yet always returning to the belief that all will be well. The theater chosen is as natural as the flow of life… Absolutely so human, so real and what a test of ourselves…. Neena Macedo December 7, 2020 Very moving and heartfelt poem Rohini!

Reply Rohini S December 4, 2020 Thank you, David Your acknowledgement means a lot, as I enjoy reading all your poems featured by the SCP. Reply Margaret Coats December 4, 2020 A beautiful meditation, with the two parts of it beautifully linked by the direct address “Father” in the first line, and the acknowledgment of being a child in line 9. Very nicely done! Reply Rohini Sunderam December 4, 2020 Thank you, Margaret You know that must have been the poetic drive, if I recall the ‘child’ just flowed naturally. Thank you for pointing it out. Reply Yael December 4, 2020 What a beautifully meaningful poem, I like it.
