like the moon cannot stop oceanic tide;
but a hidden star can still be smiling
at night's black spell on darkness, beguiling”

Barbara Kingsolver
“In my own worst seasons I've come back from the colorless world of despair by forcing myself to look hard, for a long time, at a single glorious thing: a flame of red geranium outside my bedroom window. And then another: my daughter in a yellow dress. And another: the perfect outline of a full, dark sphere behind the crescent moon. Until I learned to be in love with my life again. Like a stroke victim retraining new parts of the brain to grasp lost skills, I have taught myself joy, over and over again(15).”
Barbara Kingsolver, High Tide in Tucson

“Droplets, droplets: We are all identical drips and drops of people, hovering, waiting to be tipped, waiting for someone to show us the way, to pour us down a path.

They are the moon; we are a tide, their tide, and under their direction we will wipe clean all the sickness and blight from the world.”

Kate McGahan

“Chester stood on the shore watching the waves. Some rose, broke and were subsumed by those that followed. Some danced, their white frothy tops rising and falling rhythmically like a ballerina’s white tutu and in their joy they made progress. Others lazily rolled in and fell short of any prize. Occasionally one roared and raced in as if to capture as much of the land as possible.”
Anna Faversham, Immortality: This Is Probably a Novel

“Souls of love breathlessly sail
Towards our time when hours fail
To cope with longing here we are
Chasing the speed of a falling star

Down to the ocean, deeper the flow
Waves now know their crushing tide
Splashing between joy and pride”
Munia Khan

“I Promise You
A message of hope from a wonderful Mother

I am here to walk you
Through this journey called life
I will look after you
Until you can do so on your own
I know you need my help for now
Yes, I assure you my lovely one
I shall hold your hand no matter what
Stand by you, even in the darkest night
And ensure your days are bright
Indeed, the Earth can be so rough
Just like the ocean changes its tide
Fear not, for I will be on your side
With you, I will fly high
Until we get to the skies
And touch the shining stars
I will not let my scars
Stop me from being kind
To you, my precious child
I will be there
Until the end
I promise you!”
Gift Gugu Mona, From My Mother's Classroom: A Badge of Honour for a Remarkable Woman

Michelle Peñaloza
“The tide moves me
higher on the crags. My joints crunch
like the mussels
and barnacles beneath my boots.
I walk a tightrope,
from here to another ocean
huddled with archipelagos
where ancestral canoes
set to paddle across the world.
I teeter and my hands catch
the water rising cold.
The sea we come from is much warmer.”
Michelle Peñaloza, Former Possessions of the Spanish Empire

“The tide can turn at any time.”

Admiring the sunset instead might have been a wiser decision, as then she could at least attempt to blink away the tears forming in her eyes.”
Jean-Luke Swanepoel, The Thing About Alice

“The tide can always turn in unknown time.”
