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.

    Exactly where the ocean and it decide to meet.

    The waves make the most beautiful sound.
    A place you find peace and comfort,
    Walking hand in hand and looking around.
