The Ocean


The ocean blue

Wave after wave

Calming and beautiful


A Cure for the soul

When one is in distress

Strong and mysterious


Deep are the secrets

And life within you keep

I’d like to take a peak


Your complexity, astonishing

Makes me catch my breath

Humbleness fills within me


Such an extraordinary view

Here by the shore in the soft warm sand

Breathe in and smile at the gift that is you

    Seeing the waves slowly coming towards you shows the care that can be in your life.

      I hadn't really thought about it like that, but nice point. True.

      Yes, the sea has a wonderous effect upon all who take time to contemplate in its company. Please have a peep at the piece i posted on 4th October entitled 'the sea' and you will see how i share your feelings for this wonder.

      Really enjoyed your poem and the final line is poem all on it's own.
