The Sea

November 4, 2008
By Victoria Jones, Harrison, TN

I walk along the snow white sand






My back is turned to face the land





With eyes full of sea and heart full of bliss








It’s one thing I always miss







I wait for no ship or rowing boats






The sea, it sings only few hushed notes


With the sun full of warmth and the breeze crisp and cool






I gaze down into the bright tide pool







The sea’s tide pushes and pulls







Up above I hear the cry of sea gulls







The water is blue, silver, and green








Half its beauty never seen






Swimming, like flying, above the seabed





“Welcome, new one,” a passing fish said





Creatures that glow, creatures that shine






Here, right now, this memory is mine







Above the sky is clear and dark





Time to leave before the sea leaves its mark

I love swimming and I'm always thinking about it. This is a poem that kind of popped into my head one day and made its way onto paper.
