Poems of the Sea

The vast breathtaking beauty of the ocean naturally draws the poet to speak of her power, grace, and cruelty.

Please enjoy three poems about the sea.

The Deep

Solace found in dark and deep

in endless skies and salty feet.

Freedom felt in torrent spin

fear beheld in shadowed fin.

Mysteries buried in sunken heap

Wonder found in uncovered deep.


Behold the wonder of the deep.
Behold the wonder of the deep. | Source

I Watched

I watched an expanse come between

and all the waters gathered to one place

and dry land emerge.

I watched creatures come forth.

and out of dust come life

I watched the light of a thousand suns.

And mountains disappear

and continents spread.

I hold the flood back

and constrain the deep.

I Am The Sea

I'll swim, he said.

No, you'll sink, said she.

I'll build a castle reaching to the sky.

I'll tear it down with the tide.

I'll row my boat out to sea.

I'll wash you back in by the count of three.

I'll dive down deep.

I'll float you up.

I'll try to stay down.

You'll just give up.

I'll spend the night on soft white sand.

I'll send the wind to chill the land.

I'll build up cities oh so tall.

I'll break them down with tsunami wall.

Why do you have to be so cruel, he said.

I am the sea, said she.

      Lovely poems. I especially loved the second one, 'I Watched'. I reminded me of Genesis. 'I Am The Sea' made me smile at the truth and 'The Deep' had a beautiful rhythm to it. :)

      The sea

      Ain't a place of injustice scene,

      Not a place of death to see,

      Am yet to meet such place,

    working
