Oceans deep and the oceans wide,

where lie your mysteries, from all to hide,

beneath the surface, from warm sunlight,

your cloak, is obscure, as the night.


Blues so dark and devoid of shapes,

to drape the sands, with coral's capes,

you run from boundaries, the ancient shore,

source of tales, filled with the lore.


Pirate ships came, to sail your lanes,

to cross your width, and watery plains.

men of adventure, have sailed your seas,

carried about, on a chilling breeze.


Their mighty ships, as toy boats to you,

amid stormy straights, and winds that blew.

you welcomed all, that found a home,

their place of rest, beneath salty foam.


Gold filled treasures, to await some there,

well tucked beneath, your icy stare,

diamonds and jewels, and each so rare,

within your bounds, you have no care.


Beneath wild waves, no limits, the deep,

where whales all dream, and mermaids sleep,

the starfish shine, as if in the sky,

while the fishes play, by your watchful eye.


Ocean of mystery, you beckon us there,

to explore your depths, your best to share.

we search for answers about our home,

a quest of our births, and how far to roam.


Our creations to find, in your open arms,

with no sun to burn, and stone, that harms.

a sanctuary, as our mother, is our's to secure,

to be as natural, and in you, to be so pure.

Thanks teaches,It's funny, but often get lines of my work while in a state of half-sleep. I must get up and immediately write them down or I may forget them. Hope you enjoyed it.

If you have a notion to visit the ocean, then read this hub.

whonunuwho, In your comments you mention that you "often get lines of my work while in a state of half-sleep." That state of half-sleep is such a creative state, isn't it? It's great that you show appreciation and cultivate those gleanings by following through with writing them down.

As for this poem, it is of the ocean and for the ocean, reaching deep into its mysteries as well as skimming along its emotive surface, expressing all its colors and moods, and inferring its messages. I am an ocean person, and this poem is beautiful.

Kind regards, Stessily

THANKS FOR YOUR KIND REMARKS AND APPRECIATION. YES, THE OCEAN IS THE TRUE LAST FRONTIER AND THE ONE WE , AS HUMAN BEINGS ,SHOULD BE FOCUSING ON IN OUR MAJOR RESEARCH. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITE TOPICS IN WRITING.

Thanks stessily, I find the ocean full of mystery and the greatest challenge to us a human beings in exploration and the search for new life. It should for all purposes, be the main focus of our research, rather than space at this time. I have always been intrigued by the oceans and the unknown, and that we are such a small people, with yet to be made, discoveries, in this treasure trove, we call the sea.
