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.

    A very nice piece of work, maybe there remain one or two typos? effortly? reflect instead of reflects? (Report) Reply
