Beach Poems

Poems about Beaches and Experiencing Nature

Spending time at the beach is part of summer vacations for many people. There’s nothing else like building in the sand, jumping in the waves, and soaking up the sun. Looking out at the vast ocean has beauty all its own. Capturing the sun rising and setting off the horizon is a favorite beach activity to start and end each day. For many, going to the beach is a chance to get away from stress and hectic schedules. It’s a chance enjoy the sun, sand, water, and time with family and friends.

  1. Whispering Waves

    Power And Beauty Of The Beach

    Waves come crashing to grey sullen shores.
    Powerful and strong, it breathes and roars.
    Cascading and caressing each grain of sand,
    A warm embrace between sea and land.

    The sun and sand go hand in hand.
    The sound of constant waves -
    There's a smell of salt in the air.
    The ocean is seen through a haze.

    The Peace Of The Beach

    You look out into the water;
    The waves make the most beautiful sound.

    Descriptive Poem About The Beach

    The saffron-yellow sun grins on top of the beige sand,
    and the aquamarine waves wash up onto the seashore.
    The towering palm trees sway from side to side
    as the gentle wind whistles through the beach.

    A Comparison Between Waves And Time

    Waves continuously wash away footprints,
    Like time washes away, leaving you with a clean slate.
    A smooth beach.
    Waves wash away the good and bad.
