My Old Friend The Sea.

Updated on February 5, 2015

Feelings of being back home.

How wonderful to see the waves again,

The powerful waves of the sea,

They gently lap upon the shore.......

But don´t be fooled.......

They can do much more.


Eroding the cliffs over centuries,

The landscape changing shape,

Because of the mighty power,

Magnificent power of the waves.

The sound of the crashing water,

sends shivers down my spine,

It seems a long time,

my old friend, the sea,,

But each time I watch you,

brings a new memory,


Here, the sky may be grey,

and you´re not so blue,

Not enough sun to sparkle

on you.

But you are still YOU,

My old friend , the sea.

I´m so happy to see you

Wherever you may be........

    Hi there CelebrateUSA

    Thank you for that interesting quote from JFK. I had't heard it before.

    Cheers fr the comment, ImKarn23,

    repulses you??? Wow. Quite a strong word for the beautiful oceans.

    I fear it, sometimes as much as I love it.

    Thanks, Dim. So happy to chance upon your hub just in time before I go back to see my old friend the sea tomorrow. It's so delightful to experience your hub as a synchronistic event with my visit to the sea. Voted up!

    Hi Jahorner,

    I also love walking along the edge of the shore. I do so miss living close to it.

    Thank you for such a sweet comment.

    i adore the sea, altho - i deeply respect it and prefer it from shore - or on a weally big boat! lol..You're so right about it's power and how it molds the world!

    the sound of waves...softly lapping or crashing - is sweet heaven - a tsunami? - not so much!

    Fantastic poem about the sea. Loved the images. It's strange how the sea, like Vincent has said, seems to captivate most people. I just love walking in the sand and listening to the sea itself.

    The sea you see has always been a friend to so many for thousands of reasons as deep as she may be. It draws us to her charm, her ebb and tides and flow. Her crashings on the shores and caresses by the sand that frolic in her touch. Oh to go to the sea is such a delight for all ages. A wonderful scribe my poetic friend, I felt your romance with the sea in this piece.

    Nice work, Dim Flaxenwick, there is something hypnotic about the crashing waves and the sounds made by them. It is a magnetism that the sea seems to have for us all...to beckon us to come and explore and see what is beneath those blue shimmering waters.

    It brings back memories for me of those few brief days each year that I took walks along the seashore. Thanks.

    It's nice to remember the sea has many faces! I used to drive across Mobile Bay every morning. Most times one would never even notice it. However, when hurricanes were close, the fury and power it demonstrated demanded a closer look. Good Job!
