Ocean Poems

Three quarters of the earth's surface is covered by water. The ocean conceals billions of creatures interacting in ways that we will never fully understand. Much of the ocean is mysterious. We cruise along on boats on the ocean's surface, and sit on beaches watching the ocean's surf meet the land. One of the great things about the ocean is that we cannot build on it. It will remain a vast open space perfect for contemplation.

Only flags flap in tags with color that assigns
Only passage on vessel's …

Magical Sunset

As the day ends to rest
The sunset does its best
Setting on fire the lively waves
Colouring orange the nature he saves
its pure ancient glorious perfection.

The great ocean will …

Poem About The Beautiful Ocean, My Blue World

where time and space has no hold
I know a place where my heart and soul are one

Whale Song

A weak bellowing echoing across the dunes
One last call for help
Heat shimmering across the sand
Sun slowly drying
A beautiful giant of the sea
Once so free, so strong and powerful …

And the sand greets the sea,
The fish swim free,
And shells wash up by me.

A Storm In Sea

The silence grew,
No wind Flew,
A roar boasted all my ties,
And I saw a mighty wave rise,
Tall tough and giant it seemed,
All those nightmares redeemed,
I was doomed of my …
