The Sea That I See

The sea is like a treasure chest.
Filled with beautiful, bright fish flashing their many colors.
Shells are scattered like gold among the gritty sand.
Creatures of all sizes drift through the calm ocean waters.
The magnificent sunsets fly by its surface like birds.
Minnows dart through the shallow sandy waters.
At night, when all is calm, the sea goes to sleep.
The sea will be ready to take on tomorrow’s activities.


The author's comments:
I was walking on the beach, looking down at the sand and the shells, and I was inspired by the sound of the waves to write this poem.
