Phare de La Jument off the coast of Brittany by Jean Guichard

La Jument, off the coast of Brittany, photograph by Jean Guichard 

The white surf, walls around me
gathering and lashing in glee.
While alone I stand
the onslaught of the fury.
The perils leave a wet kiss
on my cheeks,
the sorrows surrounds me
to strengthen me.
They know not that the lover in me
loves to flirt and court challenges.
Heartbreaks build me.
I will conquer them all
flaunt them as medals
to rise above everything.
