The Sea


Far upon the rising waves
the rolling sea gives way
to sunset far, accomplishing
the end of restless day.

The life within the ocean
glides effortly; at peace.
A fading light of glowing sun
starts, quickly, to decrease.

The moon above the water,
the shine of twinkl'ng specks,
luminous and silent light
from countless stars reflect.

The sound of rolling power
from the crashing waves beneath
produces majesty and strength;
a deep, blue graceful heath.

And, as the grandeur of the sea
surrounds a calming mind,
the wind and salty air pass by;
while soul and Earth align.

    It's a beautiful poem...I can actually imagine myself standing by the rolling sea, witnessing a beautiful sunset, the shimmering moonlight, the salty wind, the waves... (Report) Reply

    Everything about this poem is just wonderful! Has a great flow which makes it easy to read and understand. The best part though is the gorgeous images reflected in the minds eye as you read. Simply a beautiful poem throughout! Have already added to my list of favorites. (Report) Reply

    Very well penned poem throughout I love the last stanza the best myself but enjoyed the overall poem itself very much. Thanks for sharing.

    I too wrote a sea faring poem if you would like to check it out it's entitled (Mother Of Sirens.) bit of a different theme but it is about the sea and then some.

    Once again great work! Keep on penning, Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

    The sound of rolling power
    from the crashing waves beneath
    produces majesty and strength;
    a deep, blue graceful heath.

    Your poem is brilliant! ! Such a lovely and beautiful portrait of the qualities of the ocean, the moon light, stars and sun set. I especially love the last verse where you end with the soothing qualities and effects that the sea has on the observer. This is a wonderful poem. Thank you for sharing it. (Report) Reply
