Sleeping within waves

Her thoughts drift by-


The sea encompasses her

A soothing blue blanket

Calm, content, secure.


With each ebb and flow she sways

Like a child being cradled to sleep.


Finally feeling at peace

Here she is safe.


Her hair spread across the pillow like

A starfish upon the ocean floor.


She dreams of riding on the backs of whales

While sleeping within waves

Resting inside a sea of creativity.



I saw a painting of a girl on this very blue background. She looked like she was sleeping and I thought about the ocean. Then I wrote this poem.
