Joanna Garrido


And the oceans stretched before her

Never ending

Their hidden depths belied in blue serene

Neath skies spread to the heavens in their vast

A pebble on the shore she could have been  

Threatening skies, waves crashing to  the shore

Dangerously compelling in their dance

Wild, untamed, free as the birds in flight

A pebble on the edge of their romance   

And the oceans spread before her feel her pain

In cloud the skies are spelling out her name

At one with nature’s splendid song, she sings

A pebble, part of Nature’s glorious game

    As we look out through the ocean we realise that we are all just pebbles on the beach glorying in the vastness of nature's wonderful world.

      I heard the gulls and felt the hugeness of the ocean ... I love being just a pebble.........

      Fantastic poem! Joanna
      I might be biased because
      I love the OceanπŸ’–
      But your writing is beautiful!
