Sensing the Sea

She gazed upon the backdrop, bright
With hues of sky-blue-pink,
And wandered, hardly knowing quite

Change

by Angela Umphers Rueger

The ocean’s waves come quietly ashore,
Then disappear as quickly as they came.
No matter what the sand was like before,
When water leaves, it’s never quite the same.

Allure

by Jem Croucher

The allure of the ocean
calls often to me
whenever I’m taken
away from the sea
So I have to return
as one does for a friend
as its magic and beauty
has no limit or end

The song of every ocean

by Jem Croucher

imgp9827

I know you’ve probably heard this
many times before
And the last thing that I want
is for it to be a bore

But the song I hear each morning
at the beginning of a day
Is something I must shout about
in each and every way

Down to the sea

by Jem Croucher

sea-13

Finished my work
wandered down to the sea
the freshening breeze
appealing to me
Watched the waves crash
there on the beach
above the tideline
and just out of reach

Waters Edge

The lapping sea
The water cold
The breakwater
The very old
The ocean song
The greying sky
The water sound
The seagull cry

Like a wave

by Jem Croucher

imgp0248

Sometime a whisper
or maybe a shout
Occasionally quiet
but mostly a lout
Always moving
restless, unstill
Rising and breaking
and crashing at will

Majesty – Sedoka

by Jem Croucher

imgp0523

Water like mountains
Incessant the ocean waves
with malevolent power

Yet there’s beauty here
The majesty of the sea
respectfully revered

The long mile – tanka

by Jem Croucher

I walk the long mile
the sea sings her songs to me
and I am at peace
In this place my heart and soul
with the ocean are as one

Nightbeach

by Jem Croucher

20161025_195025

Cast in yellow pools of light
night shadows on the beach
Wooden breakwaters stand tall
robust against the Reach
Mysterious, the water calls
quietly from the shore
as lapping waves just out of sight
return again once more

The Pacific

by A. Marie

Heave, and brace: how one tethers the moon with lash and love.
The midnight’s gown drops down around,
but the ocean, she will not be sheltered – those stars must be held,
the watery bosom pulling heaven out.

Simplicity II

by Jem Croucher

Version 2

There’s rain on the horizon
beyond a silver sea
And watching here from Goring Beach
this pure simplicity
is pretty much all that I need
to keep me satisfied
living here in Sussex
with a certain sense of pride

Breathtaking

by Jem Croucher

20161008_152349

Over in a Western sky
seen from Goring beach
a band of yellow ochre
on horizon, out of reach
I know there’s sunshine out there
but from the grey above the sea
I know the rain will come
and keep the warming rays from me

Peace and the sea

Peace takes many different forms
but down here it is the sea
On the beach at any time
but today when it’s just me

The music of the ocean

by Jem Croucher

20160913_073407

The music of the ocean
the best tune I know
as I hear if very often
when to the beach I go
It’s a full orchestral movement
with the nuances that brings
and the voices of a choir
for the wondrous songs its sings

Last day of the holidays

by Jem Croucher

dscn1989

Spent the last day of my holiday
at the beach hut by the sea
It was grey down there and windy
but that didn’t bother me
The sun came out from time to time
and there was warmth still in the air
as I sat and watched the kites
on the water surfing there

A Tiny Drop

by markfahmy
single-drop
If the world is an ocean
And, I, just a drop
That moves along the collective wave motion
Secretly wishing that it would stop
 
Whirlwinds, tornadoes circulating through
And I, a tiny drop, in the midst of it all
Does not know what it should do
Bumping and turning till it finds its role

Atlantic Surge

by Jem Croucher

IMGP0523

Outside our porthole
down on deck one
the waves surge against us
and it’s brilliant fun
Because sometimes the sky
we can see as we oughta
whilst the very next moment
we’re all underwater!

Three sixty degree seas

by Jem Croucher

20160827_075058

Three seagulls have been following
and flying in our wake
Means we must be close to land
of that there’s no mistake
For though three sixty round about
Iberian waters lie
we’re fairly close to Portugal
the seagulls seemed to cry

Lounging

by Jem Croucher

DSCN2763

Every inch of deck space
where there’s a little sun
was taken up with loungers
since the day had just begun
Reservation is forbidden
but people do it all the time
Leave their towels then disappear
It really is a crime

All at sea

by Jem Croucher

20160823_151531

There’s a world outside my window
but I’m all at sea today
Sunshine through the porthole
with waves out there at play
The Spirit’s cutting westward
but it has a way to go
and with sea all the way round us
a true ocean voyage we’ll know

White horses in paradise

by Jem Croucher

20160816_170844

I sat down at my beach hut
with white horses at low tide
The kites were out there surfing
in the blue sea vast and wide
And the breeze though fairly brisk
was blowing from the south
bringing a fresh saltiness
I could taste within my mouth

it’s blowing me home all the way
