Beside the sea

by Jem Croucher

sea 7

I watched the sea
it did me proud
It roared at me
I laughed out loud
The sun was warm
bright in my face
on Shoreham beach
my special place

This everything
this all of me
this being whole
beside the sea
I laughed again
and felt at ease
For I’m content
for times like these


The sea from the beach at Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex, UK – Jempics
