Salt water~

Cloudy clear~

Particles just floating~


With gravity obsolete.


Hills of corals~

Mountains of brown~

White caps~

Tiny shells~

Crimson sand a sparkle.



Splashing miniature waves~

White foam~

Layers of dark~

Than light~

A greenish mist~

Hardly to be seen. ~


Than swirls~

Of my little sea.


Oh! ~

My multi colored ocean~

I do hold~

More precious to me~

Than any~

Amount of gold.


I can share this sensation~

With anyone~

But will it be appreciated~

In the same?


With my own hand~

I manipulate this wonder water~

To have my eyes~

Watch the sea~

And it’s charm.


I could watch forever~

The simple shells fall~

In never ending places~

In my sea~

Of wonder water.

      I think that young I had no concept of how to start a business, and even though I have run busineses in my life time, I still have not ever done much with my art work or poetry because it comes natuarl to create, but to actually market and profit I fall short of the interest in doing so even though I do have dreams of doing so...and it was a magical dreamy world to get lost in...HUGS to you Mr. Happy !

      Wow 1973 ... Mr. Happy wasn't even an intent then, nevermind part of this world. Haha!!

      Wonderful story about your ocean triangle creation. I can appreciate the poem even more now, since I have the imagery of your invention. How come it did not turn into a business? Sounds pretty cool of an idea. : )

      Thank You for the details. All the best!

      Thank You Mr. Happy! I actually wrote most of this in 1973 and fixed a little as a rewrite in 2009. Back in 1973 I would had been maybe 15 years old (give or take a few years). In any case I was very young. I remember having a girlfriend come from the beach and bringing me the salt water, sand and shells which I made as an art project a triangular type of incasing to hold these items in the salt water. It was all water proof made out off glass I had cut and than sealed together with some sort of apoxy. It was like a three sided triangular shape. In which I could shake it up like a snow globe of sorts.

      I would watch it for hours as I shook it and watched all the sand and shell trinkets inside fall into thier new settled places. It was really kool and I loved it very much. I was proud of my design and enjoied escaping into the wonderworld it held. Now I look back to how young I was to had designed such a thing and what a challenging project it was, and how much I appreciated it for years afterwords. Of course just like in puff the magic dragon certain kool things turn into other new kool things to play with. So eventually my triangular wonder water was either passed on to some one new or ended up in a bunch of things to get rid of at my mothers house. However all is not lost because I have this poem to bring me back in time with fond memmories.

      I can't say whether I like salt water better or fresh water better. I think I like salt water more for swimming and playing but for the rest of the time, fresh water is what I like to work with.

      Water is water though: beautiful, playful, energetic ... I love It!

      "I could watch forever" - For me it is the waves that I can watch forever. On and on, crashing on the sand ... nothing matters. Water is just simply gorgeous and the Power it holds ... magnificent!

      Thank You for the write. I thank You in the name of Water as well. It is the second strongest guiding Element for me. I am always grateful for It.

      Awesome poem. Cheers!
