Journey by Sea

Source

Walking along the beach gives a feeling of complete freedom.

Wind through hair.

Shingle grinding under foot.


A great and seemingly endless expanse of ocean,

Stretches wide and meets the horizon.

Vast and ever far-reaching is the sea.


Becoming one with the sea,

I forget so many things which trouble me.

They fall away into the depths.


Weightless and free;

Floating on this gentle tide,

Which; rocks and soothes stress away.


When there is an Indian summer,

You can swim in the water until October.

The sun beats down on it all year,

So it stays warm late into the season.

Another lovely poem where you transported me to the sea. I love standing on the beach staring at the vast sea it does make life's troubles seem smaller.

I agree Christin, the sea can be so relaxing and yet so fierce at times. Thanks for visiting me here. Good luck with the great writing (not that you need it).
