"Sea Shells"

Updated on June 1, 2012

Subliminally Thoughtless Poetry Challenge

Poem Written

Poem Title "Sea Shells" created

by Vellur

Sea Shells




indigo grins of skyline peer on horizons


that electrify the waves of soothing emotions


to shine glistening waters to the heavens as


light breeze enters charismatic tranquility


of seascape serenity in milky sands


that shimmer rhythmic light of hypnotic


enlighten essence in the paradise


of whimsical vibrant moments


to dazzle into majestic shells


fluttering on gentle cloudlike tides


arriving in ravishing elegant gifts


lining along frosted dreamy shores

      Whisper

      in sea shells

      let it flow out to sea

      ---

      Heavy with sorrows

      they drown

      into the depth of sea

      ---

      One day

      it will be released

      of all sorrows

      ---

      And float

      to meet the sand

      a cycle of collecting, releasing...

      I love the sea. I met the sea for the first time when I was 8 years old, and it caused a tremendous impression on me to see the immensity of the sea for the first time. Your poem transported me back to those extraordinary moments of my life. Voted up! and awesome!

      After I did this poem it made me wonder why in the world am I behind a computer screen when I should be seeing the world, cause I know at my end of days when I look back I will not remember this screen...

      cruelkindness: The title is perfect. Voted up and beautiful. I could feel it all. Love the phrase, "to dazzle into majestic shells fluttering on gentle cloudlike tides..." I NEVER would have thought of that tremendous description. Thank you! What a great writer you are! Blessings, Sparklea :)

      The imagery here is gentle and yeah, utterly dreamy. Wielding a powerful lens as well as an abstract mind -extraordinary, cruelkindness!

      "enlighten essence in the paradise

      of whimsical vibrant moments

      to dazzle into majestic shells..."

      Surreal! Loved this.

      I agree with tobusiness, this poems brings memories of beaches I have loved and beaches I have yet to love. By the way what is the "Subliminally Thoughtless Poetry Challenge" sounds interesting. Jamie

      Felt wonderful, calm, wind, and the beach. It is amazing that poetry can put feelings into people. Many poets can't do that.

      Works for me. Walked along the beach of dreamy frosted shores and collected some seashells.
