Songs of the Sea


I am the one who longs for the songs of the sea. My emerald green eyes dance across the rushing waves into the soul of my being. It's here, when I hear their echo beckoning me. Sweet songs of the sea!
This is where I long to be.

Where, l feel the presence of God's through His beautiful creation all around embracing the water's edge.
I take a deep breath making my heart's pledge.

I am the one who longs for the songs of the sea to swim with my friends the dolphins as they thrush me deeper and deeper into the mysteries of the sea.
This is where I long to be.

To hear songs come alive, as I swim across the sandy bottom of the surface gently grazing long polished pink nails.

Quick, I hear the snails.
I'll follow the dark grey humpback whales.

The symphony of the sea comes alive playing a song in harmony, with the sun revealing the mysteries of the sea.

The 2ft starfish dances in the deep depths of the sea, teasing me.
This is where I long to be.

To search for old treasures of sunken ships that emerge enough, to just get a glimpse from the sunrays that dance across clear sparkling iridescent waters.
This is where the mermaids' daughters,
Come to look for hidden jewels.

Every time, I come here it takes me back to another time, when orchestras played, and sailors waved farewell to their wives.

And mermaids paid their visits toting fresh fish in hand waving with their long proud flirty blue tails, on a hot sunny day!

Not feeling the sun's ray.
I am the one who longs for the songs of the sea. Please, let me close my eyes one more time, and hear the tranquility of the rushing waves, beckoning me.

This is where I truly long to be.

I so long to see the mermaids one last time, waving their long flirty polished blue tails, splashing as high as they can, reaching to the bright blue sky!
If I never make it back, I'll surely cry.

I am the one who longs for the songs of the sea; just take one look into my emerald green eyes. And look into the heart of the sea reflecting from my thoughts, with waves begging me to ride one more time. Can you not see; that the sea belongs to me?
I am the one who longs for, the songs of the sea

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
