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.

    Sea Poem

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

    I picked up a brush
    and 80 bucks worth of paint.
    After a few tries, I know
    that kind of artist I ain't.

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

  8. A Day At The Beach

    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.

    You've painted a picture that would make most who read it edger to find a beach somewhere and experience it for themselves. Your depiction is dead on.

    Trip To Jamaica

    Emerald hills and turquoise seas
    Endless canvas brushed with trees
    That sway so gently in the hue
    Of watercolor azure blue
