The oceans of the world

are filled with great majesty

Stretching across many horizons

Blue water that flows to seemingly no end

as clouds fly overhead

Inhabiting beautiful creatures that swim close to shore

and live deep below

where no natural light

can shine down into their homes

The oceans of the world

flow for many miles

and gives one the feeling of great harmony

Blue water to the eye that can be hypnotizing

Peaceful by nature

with a violent side

The oceans of the world

cannot be denied

their purity and wonder

A gift meant for all

with few limitations

Blue water that flows on and on

as the sun shines on top of its surface

Creatures down below

swim up from the darkness

The oceans of the world

are a sight of true scenery

With blue water that flows

for what seems an eternity

This is a beautiful poem! Its structure and wording is like the ocean itself; deep, fluid and relaxing. I love how even the creatures are mentioned in several lines, as opposed to the focus being on ocean water only. :)
