Silent Sea (poem)

Oh silent sea I feel your endless waves

They’re earning ever turning at my shore

With promises my soul can scarce ignore

What do you bode which once was me now craves


A pathway to the lost and evermore

Is this the treasure hidden in your graves

The Joyous dancing fond among love’s slaves

Confused enticement leads me to explore


Oh silent sea what music do you mourn

Which causes you to search this sand of time

Do teardrops pierce the depth of mystery


Oh silent sea can losses be reborn

Some rift between the meaning of life’s rhyme

Where music and lost lover wait for me

Very beautiful indeed. The sea and I have a long history. Possibly similar. Love the violin piece you paired with it!

Mhatter99..The mysteries of the sea are so deep and secretive..yet the waves crash against the shore removing all debris and all is clear again..

Such is our minds as we write our thoughts..very poignant..loved it..
