The sea to me is always one of such expanse of the unknown. It has always fasinated me...

A massive sheet of unknown before you is the sea,
extending from the sea shore to the distant horizon you see.
Sitting on the shore tranquil, the sea hypnotises your gaze,
the breeze from the ocean coldly passes by your face.

The sea whispers its secrets, no human can understand,
an ancient primitive desire as it calls out to the land.
With such potent power it renders to sit and reflect,
rolling waves crashing in with a hypnotic, rhythmic effect.

The sea so mysterious as it casts its magic plan,
to shed our constricting shoes, the warmth felt on the sand.
Standing at the shore, with water foaming at my feet,
washing my heart and soul, as the ebbs flow in beat.

It is serenity at its finest, while gulls flutter along,
a vast expanse of water, no idea what lurks beyond.
It calls out to you as the water meets the sand,
then slowly it dissipates as it rolls gently back out again.

I also love the ocen. What a wonderful poem and the picture your words paint make me feel as if I am on the beach. Great flow and rhyme. Well written

I too love the ocean...we scattered my grandmothers ashes last year so it even has a more special meaning. However it is a mystery that I think we have only scratched the surface of any understanding. Have many more to put on but its getting late so will continue tomorrow and possibly the next day. I think I have about 85 poems that I'm going to put on...maybe I am just seriously mad!!!
