The Ocean


Perpetual sapphire immense and unique,

Unassailable saline, wondrous blue deep.

Shimmering waves of delicate notion,

Staggering in grandeur, rhythmic in motion.


Copious with time, such beauty astounds,

Orchestra of entities in darkness profound.

Sonorous with life under twilight aglow,

Silhouette of giants swim delicately below.


Marine alga swept aside with the tide,

Waves crash steadily onto to silver shores.

Flounder in coral confide,

Surreal mass of beasts sweeps the ocean floor.


Blue whales in verse in personified tune,

Unfettered plethora in magical bloom.

        Don't know why, but part of this fits to the song with 'Chim-chim-cheree' in it. I forgot the title! lol.

          Has a great flow to it (no pun intended) - welcome to the site.

          • Simon Bromley

            Thank you kindly I'm enjoying it so far. Much better than the previous site.

            • Michael Edwards

              Although it's an American site there are many British contributors which makes a great mix. Hope to see more of your work in due course.
