Two poems for the sea


The perfect sea

2,500 mile journey  from Michigan to the California coastline and I found my perfect love.

She was wild and not tamed.

She danced for me without care and I adored her free movement and wild dance..

She beckon me to come and dance with her.

She was a love that would haunt me forever now. A unrequited love.

She knew I was an captive love as roamed the quiet beach.

I walked barefooted with her  on the cold December morning and

I whispered to the goddess of the sea.

Thank you for the Pacific Ocean. The perfect sea.




The Coastline


I fell in love with her on a December morning.
I stop my truck and I was star struck at her beauty.
Her power.

I walk quickly to her.
She was dancing on the shore.

Nothing could equal her beauty.
I gazed in wonder for hours sitting on the sand.

How could I have not escape to her beauty before this day?

Now I walk up and down the shore.
Watching the waves.
The beauty of her be-witched my heart.

I knew when I left her.
I would yearn for her sight.
Never be complete till she was dancing my  feet again.

My love was the Pacific ocean.
The peaceful sea.

I wish to be with her today.
