Oceans and Seas
How you enchant me, bewitch;
With your song so powerful and true
at times whispering sweet
at times roaring with incredible might.
This day you decided to play
Orchestrate every pebble on a shingle beach,
As each wave rolled them towards the shore
then withdrew, returning again.
And again, and again,
hypnotizing and bewitching tunes.
Today you were playful, I was grateful
as this was my first trip out, in a year and a half;
The joy to meet again was beyond words.
With your friend, the wind, you can cause
Hurricanes, tsunamis but also gently roll,
Tickle my toes along the surf.
I love you ocean and sea, thanks for still being you,
Powerful, yet kind.
