Sparkling

A fraction
of the ocean
is lit up.
Gleaming,
Glistening,
Sparkling.

The sun,
is hiding,
but marking
its presence
by mirroring
its image,
in reflection.
Gleaming,
Glistening,
Sparkling.

Glancing,
it flickers,
and jumps
to my eyes;
never moving,
it lies there,
sprawled across.
Gleaming,
Glistening,
Sparkling.

you create a beautiful image in this poem. i can really visualize the scene you describe. i've only been to an ocean once when i was little, but after reading this, i feel like i've been there! very nice job...

This is excellent, I love the imagery and the repetition at the end of every stanza tying it all together :)

i suppose this one doesn't have a specific message. it's more for the image and visual it creates

Your poetry has nice variety to it. You're not simply reusing the same poem each time. I like how this one keeps returning to the same three magical words, "Gleaming, Glistening, Sparkling." Each one is full of imagery, and together they enable us to easily "see" the vision in your head.
