Ocean Poems

Poems about Deep Blue Seas

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.

  1. Promises Of A New Day

    Exploring Life's Possibilities

    The perpetual cadence of the vast sea
    Stirs a restless desire that engulfs me.
    Like an infinite force I dare not impede,
    Briefly rushing in - only to then recede.

  3. Sea Fever

    I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
    And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
    And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
    And a gray mist on the sea's face, and a gray dawn breaking.

    Seagulls soar above her surf,

    The waves trickle along my toes.
    The soft ocean sprays across my nose.
    The sand was compliant under my feet,
    Exactly where the ocean and it decide to meet.

    This is a love affair with the sea and shore. It uses all of our senses by embracing it. It takes the reader to the seashore. It may be good to use for my mindful group sessions.

    The red and white striped lighthouse,
    Standing by the sea,
    As quiet as a mouse,
    Telling boats where it be.

    I live in Alaska and the sunsets are so beautiful on the water. I can totally relate to the part at the end where it says the night devours the magic but I still stand in awe.
