A Miracle To Behold

Published: April 2019

Seagulls soar above her surf,
The sun reflects and gleams,
While people come from miles around
To stroll upon her beach.

Her touch conveys an icy chill
Through her stinging, foamy spray,
While her thunderous waves rush to the shore,
Then gently roll away.

Her blue horizon meets the sky,
The end cannot be seen
While her salty fragrance fills the air
And floats upon the breeze.

She safely cradles in her arms
The boats that bounce upon her tides
And plays coy with all the surfers
Who beckon for another ride.

She can distract us from our worries.
She can lure and hypnotize.
With the rhythm of her movement
And her beauty in our eyes.

She's a force that can't be reckoned with,
A power to revere.
She's a lovely, sweet seductress
Who we long to settle near.

There are no words that truly tell
The splendor of her face
Or recreate that feeling,
Of such a warm and peaceful place.

The ocean is a lovely gift.
She's God's great Masterpiece.
A miracle we can behold
That gives us reason to believe.

Dear Elizabeth,
Growing up in New Jersey, I have always had easy access to the ocean. I love the ocean but, I have always been interested in the beauty of the PACNW. I love to look at films that take place there and pictures of that area. I am truly honored and thrilled that your daughter has chosen my poem about the ocean to recite at her School Festival next month. Please tell her how much it means to me to have her pay such a wonderful tribute to my words. I wish I could be there. Please tell her good luck from me and thank you so very much again.
Sincerely,
Pat F.

My daughter loves the ocean. I grew up by the coast but she has grown up in the PACNW. She chose your poem to recite in her All-school Poetry Festival next month! I believe she is the only student reciting a modern work.
