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.

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

The Angry Sea – sedoka

by Jem Croucher

dscn9804

In this brittle chill
the sea is often angry
as it tosses waves at me

But I am wary
keeping my distance I stand
in awe above the tideline

by Jem Croucher

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

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!

The Moon I lit
         on my eyes
Gave a thousand candles
         on my palms

The Sun I set
         in my heart
Gave a thousand rays
         in my mind

Waves

by Venkat

Waves, they rolled
       on yesterday’s sand
Waves, they filled
       footprints of the heart

Waves, they gave
       a page to dream on
Waves, they took
       words of yesterday

Simplicity

by Jem Croucher

DSCN9799

A walk on the beach
with time to unwind
is good for the soul
and good for the mind
The air here is clear
and the smell of the sea
is always a solace
and a comfort to me

As above, so below

As above, so here below
blue sky and deep blue sea
The gently turning silent waves
creep up to welcome me

at the waters’ edge
on the old breakwater
such a privilege

Satisfied grin

by Jem Croucher

 

Sparkling like diamonds
those beads of the sea
shine in the sunshine
and fascinate me
Sitting here on the shingle
as the tide washes in
I am caught in the moment
with a satisfied grin

On your ocean
My thoughts twist and tumble

When I measure your waves, by this fist
You grimace, for not feeling your breeze

Salty Paradox

by russtowne

How can something as loud and violent

As powerful pounding waves

Crashing on jagged rocks

Make me feel so calm and peaceful?

The sea from safe distance

by Jem Croucher

DSCN9804

The mischievous sea
with the high winds last night
is tossing and turning
and a fabulous sight

I’d not want to be out there
in the chop and the churn
But I’ll stand on the shore
for some lessons to learn

As I knocked the door, we made
Your steps knocked, my mind

As I left this world, in my shoes
Your heart left its smile, in my eyes

Lost, found and kept

by Jem Croucher

 

Lost to shouting seas
Found with murmuring ones
Kept upon a whisper
When the silence comes

Snatched when anger’s present
Gathered when it’s calm
Shared upon a whisper
When words become my psalm

Kept words

by Jem Croucher

 

Whispering, the sea trickled
and I kept my words
Precious and gentle
with the caress of
a summer wave
effortlessly moving across the sand
So I shared a few
with the waters
and walked away

Found words

by Jem Croucher

 

Inviting, the sea murmured
and my words were found
Swiftly carried in on waves
rushing in to tell me
about all the green out there
behind the rising tide
So I gathered several
from the shore
and walked away

Lost words

by Jem Croucher

 

Shouting, the sea roared
and my words were lost
Carried away as flotsam
on foaming waves
intent only on their
own cacophonous noise

Lights bend
To brighten my shadows

With the good, by my side

To lighten my steps

The Undertow

by Jem Croucher

DSCN9801

Beware the undertow
My Mother always said
Always wondered what it looked like
as the thought filled me with dread

I pictured quite a monster
Lurking down below
Beneath the waves just waiting
But for what, I didn’t know

Living as an ocean

by Jem Croucher

 

I can close my eyes and drift away
with sea scent on the air
whilst the cries of seagulls up above
adds a richness there

I can drift away on a summer tide
as it laps up on the shore
floating as it ebbs away
as my mind cries out for more

On the beach

by Jem Croucher

 

On the beach near the water
Breakwater’s lee
Watching the waves
of a soft lapping sea
The sun’s playing hide n seek
behind the grey
But it’s muggy and warm
so I’m happy to play
