Sea Sonnet

Location

The sea sings a sweet song of my desire

Morning sunlight kisses my warm, pale cheeks

A marbled sunrise painted the color of fire

On wind-swept sand sea birds preen with their beaks

The wet and wild days of a ship’s captain

Opaque clouds mask the twilight sky at night

There lies in my heart a growing faction

Like wings of the seagulls my soul takes flight

While thunder cracks and waves roll onto shore

Driftwood sails by in shades of ebony

Sea foam gurgles and winds begin to roar

sky and the sea in endless harmony

I left my heart in the sand by the sea Oh dear ocean I will return to thee
