The Sea Whispers to Me

Ever since the first time

I laid my eyes upon the sea

it seemed like a bond formed

between me and the deep blue sea

the sea is a moody as I am

and swiftly changes with the going and coming

of the tides

on a clear, sunny day

it is as blue as it can be

here and there are specks of green

and sprinkled with glittering diamonds

when the sun shines upon the waves

on a gray and dark day

it is like silver

and the waves come crashing

in stormy defiance

instead of gently

lapping against the shore

but on the best of summer days

when its mood is like mine

light and gay

the sea seems to be whispering to me

and I imagine that it’s telling me

about its life through the centuries

of the many different lands it has seen

about life under the sea

where mermaids live in castles

and magical looking fish swim

and these whispers that I hear

become like a soft melody

its refrain heard in a seashell

and the sea seems to say

come to me

let me take you on a journey

and show you the wonders I know

I can imagine being a gull

tired of flying

just bobbing on the waves of the sea

gently whispering a lullaby to me

it would make my life so grand

if I could live by the sea

for the sea and I have formed a bond

our ties go so very deep

it’s a friendship kept with others

in the treasure chest within my heart

a friendship that I will forever keep

Oddly I've never been a big fan of the sea. Maybe if I'd read more beautiful poetry like this I would have developed a love affair with it. :)

I am a big fan of the sea. The waves were my lullaby, so this piece just speaks to me! Well done!

How strange that I should read this tonight. My husband is in the other room looking at boats.

I do think there are people so drawn to the sea, they pine for it when they are away.

I feel connected to something which is beyond horizon, something invisible when i look at the mighty sea.

Enjoyed the poem :)

Down by the sea is where I'd rather be. I totally relate your poem. It's my dream to one day live close enough to the ocean to hear the waves pushing to shore as I drift off to sleep .

Wonderfully written.

Oh what stories the seas can tell! I love sitting by the ocean, especially as the sun is setting. It's such a soothing feeling, listening to the waves and watching the colors of the sunset dance upon the water.

I love this, Rasma. I can see you sitting by the sea having a silent conversation with her.
