Endless Sea, a Tanka poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

May 2nd is the anniversary of the death of the Russian painter  Ivan Aivazovsky.  Most of his paintings were about the sea.  His most prominent being The Ninth Wave which I have used  here previously to accompany one of my poems.  For more info on him click here.

On this day, May 2nd I honor this painter who I think had an amazing skill in my first ever Tanka poem.

Endless SeaAmong the Waves, Ivan Aivazovsky (1898)

Endless Sea

Me the endless sea
Let me soon absorb your all
Setting your mind free
Ridding pain both big and small
Your new life shall be in me
